Trivia

Produced by Hanna-Barbera, this television special is a live action version of The Super Friends cartoon, specifically Challenge of the Superfriends (1978). The producers were unable to use the characters of Superman and Wonder Woman (featured in the original Super Friends) since Superman launched into a film franchise, and Wonder Woman was having her own television series at the time. Superman, Batman (but not Robin), and Wonder Woman had their first live action appearance onscreen together in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). See more »

I love this movie!
26 June 2002 | by tie_basserSee all my reviews

I own a copy of this and it's hilarious. Watching it nowadays, it's so comical. I love the riddler! He's perfect and Frank Gorshin does him beautifully! I think everyone should see this movie! Even if it is just for a laugh!
