Love that photo of Ultraman!

I was looking for Green Lantern and ran into the first Teen Titans cartoon from, yes the date is correct, 1967. This is classic Filmation from the 1960's, even down to the voice overs by Ted Knight. Awesome!

Here's one that probably only Edd remembers...

A fellow named Vapor Man.

Vapor Man was part of the Galaxy Trio, a group of "space cops" solving mysteries and capturing bad guys in space (kinda like Guardians of the Galaxy, or the Nova Corps).

And no, I did not create my long time username for everything because of the character. I didn't even know he existed until just a few years ago.

Excellent post ghost dude and you've set things up nicely for me.

Notice that the "Teen Titans" are the work of Filmation while the "Galaxy Trio" were the middle (filler) cartoon for the Birdman sandwich. Which one do you like better? This is an interesting comparison because both cartoons were contemporaries in 1967 and competed for the same audience. 

1967 was "ground zero" in the Saturday Morning Superhero battle between the three major networks - all the result of what I call the "Superhero Revolution" of 1965.

Before 1965 Saturday mornings were fairly quiet affairs, but Filmation changed all that when it brought Superman back to television with an animated series on CBS called, "The NEW Adventures of Superman" in homage to the 1951 live action series. Nothing like this had been seen on TV since the Fleischer Brothers Superman animated series from the 1940's.

CBS and Filmation cleaned house that year and it didn't take long for NBC and ABC to respond the following year. The result was the spectacular 1966/1967/1968 cartoon seasons as each network tried to out-do the competition.

The network battle was the main event but behind the frontlines was the studio wars as Hanna-Barbera was dumbstruck by the speed with which Filmation had made a home for itself at CBS. H-B had to move fast cuz Filmation had a whole galaxy of new shows to offer CBS for 1966 - and I was in cartoon heaven!

For reasons I will never understand, NBC stood by its decision to stick with "The Pink Panther" series from DePatie/Freleng, a move that had my friends at school scratching their heads. The Pink Panther was getting a whoopin' on Saturday mornings. By 1967 NBC was looking for a musclebound hero of its own to save face. Thank you to the guys at H-B for the "Birdman and the Galaxy Trio" series. NBC was still struggling against the competition but now they had better street cred. Like "Space Ghost", "Birdman" has found a second life in the 21st century.
