The cable network Boomerang has recently been airing episodes of the show Challenenge of the Superfriends which originally aired in 1978-1979. I can still recall the anticipation I had on saturday morning as 7:30 approached and the best half hour of the week would ensue (and the feeling of despondency when all that goodness was over). The villians were so badass: Black Manta, Lex Luthor, Gorilla Grodd, Bizarro and the Priscilla Rich – The Cheetah! who I had an early crush on (see picture – hubba hubba). The plots of the episodes were completely far out as well. Seeing some of these episodes I realize now how influential they were to my young mind.
