The Daily Ping

Women make wilk, big whop!

November 15th, 2001


Like most kids, I was into super heroes as a kid. One of my favorite cartoons was Superfriends, which featured all the big names (Batman and Robin, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman) and a few of the lesser superheroes (Hawkman, Samurai). I remember having an especially keen eye for when the colors on the bat on Batman’s chest were momentarily inverted. The same went for Robin’s “R.” The fascination with the Superfriends lay dormant until college, when I taped six hours of a marathon and actually ended up sampling heavily from one episode for a song I did called “Supa Man” (where I also sampled Tony Orlando and Dawn, but that’s another story).

This past weekend, Cartoon Network’s Boomerang ran a full weekend of Superfriends episodes. I was especially psyched to catch the first episode of Challenge of the Superfriends, which pitted the full Justice League of America crew against the Legion of Doom (that Scarecrow was one cool ass villain). And this Saturday, Cartoon Network will debut the new Justice League series.

Be sure to check out the Brunching Shuttlecocks take on some of the Friends. And rest well tonight knowing that I still have the Superfriends bedsheets that I had as a kid, complete with Marvin, Wendy, and Wonderdog (in the pose seen here). -ram
