Justice League of America Intro (1967)

I can say in all honesty that I’ve somehow missed EVER seeing this 1967 Filmation animated intro, or if I have for some reason it’s been locked away securely in the memory banks somewhere just gathering dust.

This intro of the Justice League was for the popular Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure that aired on CBS, you might notice the narrator sounds familiar…that is because it’s the late and great actor, Ted Knight (Mary Tyler Moore, Caddyshack).

The series also starred Bud Collyer, who voiced the roles of Clark Kent and Superman for radio! A year later new Superman and Superboy segments would be added to the Batman/Superman Hour.

Thanks to Hewey1972 for uploading the Justice League of America intro over on YouTube!

  1. @Caffeinated Joe I agree with you and Six Million Dollar Jedi both!

    Strangely, I’ve not been able to find the Batman/Superman Hour intro…anywhere! So if one of you kind readers has that somewhere on VHS tape…put it up on YouTube and share it with the rests of us!

    SMDJ, would you say the animated line-up is your favorite incarnation of DC’s Superhero team?

  2. @Vic – Yes this is a good lineup of the JLA. I’m also fine with Batman and Wonder Woman on the team. I’ve never understood why DC will use C-list characters for the Justice League. Even with the new relaunch it irks me that they are using Cyborg. Everyone on the team is fine except for him.
