The Marvel Super Heroes – Campy Theme Songs From the 1966 Cartoon Series

The Marvel Super Heroes was an animated cartoon series, first broadcast on U.S. television in the 1960s.

The low budget series used the technique of xerography; a process that involved the use of photocopied images from comic books, which were then manipulated to animate the characters.

The program had five segments, and each one featured the adventures of a popular Marvel superhero. Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, The Invincible Iron Man, The Mighty Thor, and Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner were the characters showcased by the show.

After searching around a bit, I was able to find the theme songs for all the superheroes on the show. Some of them are quite campy, but still great fun to watch.

The Incredible Hulk Movie Trailer

The much-awaited trailer for The Incredible Hulk is finally here. Edward Norton (one of my favorite actors) plays the Hulk (one of my favorite superheroes) in this ‘rebooted’ movie version of the much misunderstood, Marvel Comics giant.

There has been a lot of speculation about the upcoming movie, much of it about the lack of any large scale publicity for a $150 million movie. After watching the trailer, I wasn’t very impressed by the look of the Hulk. Admittedly,  it’s not the mistake of the movie makers, as re-creating  a believable,  green-skinned Goliath  on screen is not a very easy task. Somehow, I found the cgi effects of the Transformers movie much more enjoyable. And I can’t help shake off the feeling, that Norton is just sleep-walking through the role.

Still, I would love it if Norton and Co. prove me wrong.

Don’t you ?
