Editorial Reviews

Aquaman, King of the Seven Seas, also features his teen-aged sidekick Aqualad, Mera (who is referred to as an "Atlantean girl" in the series), and Aqualad's pet walrus, Tusky. Also featured are the Aqua-duo's sea horses, Storm and Imp. Set in the lost city of Atlantis, Aquaman is the hero from the deep who protects the sea against any foes who threaten the peaceful undersea life. Aided by his ward Aqualad, Aquaman fights for justice on the ocean floor while keeping close contact with friends on dry land.

Aqualad: "What's the matter, Aquaman?"

Aquaman: "I don't know. The fish are trying to tell me something."

My man Arthur Curry (aka Aquaman) has been around a long time, having debuted in More Fun Comics in 1941 and off-and-on starring in his own comic book. And, despite the longevity and near-but-not-quite iconic stature, there are busloads of people who just aren't feeling Aquaman. And I guess I can see where they're coming from. He's a bit hard to pigeonhole, this outsider, as he's forever tiptoeing the line of superhero and undersea sovereign. Priorities are a definite issue. With much cooler capes like Batman, Superman, the Flash, and Green Lantern doing their thing, Aquaman as a superhero pales in comparison, right? I mean, he's a guy whose super powers are chit-chatting with fish, breathing underwater, and swimming really fast. And these talents don't really translate well when he ventures to shore. Not to mention, remove him from his watery environs for longer than an hour, and he croaks. Wussy stuff, right? But here's the thing: I dig Aquaman. I liked him lots when I was a mere tadpole, and this was because of his cartoon show. When I was a teen it became more of a pity liking, a rooting-for-the-underdog thing. I felt bad for the guy, relegated all the time to secondary status in the Super Friends show and in the JLA comics. But at least he had his own cartoons.

From 1967 to 1968, CBS thrilled kids of all ages with THE SUPERMAN/AQUAMAN HOUR OF ADVENTURE, a Filmation-produced animated series. This hour-long show, comprised of 7 minute episodes, not only starred the titular superheroes (and Superboy) but also provided "guest" episodes featuring the Flash, Hawkman, the Atom, Green Lantern, the JLA, and the Teen Titans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure, fun, and a great buy! October 28, 2007
Ah Filmation, first THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN and then THE ADVENTURES OF AQUAMAN (originally THE SUPERMAN/AQUAMAN HOUR OF ADVENTURE 1967)! Well done by all. Good times, good times.

I gotta give Lou, Norm, Hal, and the FILMATION crew credit, they made Aquaman and his world exciting. From stopping an invasion in an inter-dimentional water world to halting a civil war on another planet Filmation's Aquaman ran the gammit. Along with his teen partner Aqualad our hero showed every super-villain and would-be conqueror that if you invade his seas you will get your butt kicked (either by bull-whale or a super-dense hard water ball upside your face). In Filmation's series Aquaman was truly The King of the Seven Seas!

Filmation did right what Hanna-Barbera's SUPER FRIENDS later did wrong: TREATED AQUAMAN WITH RESPECT. In THE ADVENTURES OF AQUAMAN our hero has his enhanced strength & super-speed. He's a excellent strategist and leader. He throws a mean punch and hard water jet. He doesn't believe in killing ("Treacherous is the Torpedo Man") and is a strong believer in peace ("The War Between the Quantix and the Bimphars").
No riding shot-gun for this Aquaman (like he would later to in SUPER FRIENDS). Riding his loyal sea-horse Storm looked much more heroic than sitting in the Invisible Jet.
On this show Aquaman GETS THE JOB DONE!

And his Rogues Gallery is pretty decent too. Yep, Black Manta is here (of course) but so is The Fisherman and The Torpedo Man. Plus newbies: Queen Vassa, The Brain, Captain Barracuda & Starro (not THAT Starro, sorry JLA fans), and many monsters, rogues, and hidden realms.

One major factor about Filmation's Aquaman is in his use of his telepathic powers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A TRIP IN THE WAY BACK MACHINE April 14, 2008
First, a little history behind the series. These Aquaman episodes were originally broadcast in 1967 - 1968 as part of the Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure. The show featured not only the two heroes of the title, but also guest appearances by other characters such as The Atom, Green Lantern, Hawkman, The Flash, and even the Teen Titans. Then in 1968, just the Aquaman episodes were repackaged by CBS and the animation studio, Filmation, as the Aquaman show, which then ran from 1968 - 1970 on Saturday mornings. All 36 episodes (running about 6 - 7 minutes each) are included in this brand new two DVD set.

The show starred Marvin Miller as the voice of Aquaman and Ted Knight as the shows narrator as well as Aquaman's nemesis Black Manta. Miller provided the voice of Robby the Robot in the sci-fi classic, Forbidden Planet. Knight of course is best known for his portrayal as news anchor Ted Baxter in the Mary Tyler Moore Show and also as Judge Smales in Caddyshack. Knight also did a lot of work in animation. Besides Aquaman, he was the long time narrator of the Super Friends animated show. My only complaint about Knight is that he pronounces the characters name as if it were spelled "ACK-waman", and it's quite annoying.

The show was produced by Filmation, a fairly prolific animation studio during the 60's through the 80's. Among the classic Saturday morning shows they produced were The Archie Show, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, Star Trek the Animated Series, the live-action Shazam series, The Groovie Goolies, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and Bravestar. Filmation really has an incredible resume. Like rival studio, Hanna Barbera, Filmation perfected a low-cost approach to animation, particularly in their shows of the 60's and 70's.
