4.0 out of 5 stars Stan Lee and Frank Welker save the day! 4 Mar 2010
Through no fault of DePatie-Freleng, the character of the Human Torch couldn't be included in this series because he'd already been optioned for a film project which, at the time, didn't come to fruition. Instead, marvel legend Stan Lee created Herbie the Robot, voiced by the multi-talented Frank Welker, Megatron in the original Transformers. Although some fans reacted badly to the new character, for those who were just small children at the time, Herbie was perfect for us. His longevity has since been assured in Marvel Comics where he now serves as a sidekick to Franklin Richards, son of Mr & Mrs Fantastic.

As a small child many years ago, this series was a great introduction for me to the World of Marvel Comics. Guest characters include Magneto, Blastarr, Doctor Doom, The Inhumans, and Skrulls to name but a few. The stories and characters have an innocence about them which is missing from modern television, and the emphasis is always on fun... even when Herbie and Ben are squabbling the way best friends tend to.

And if the cell-animation seems simple and basic by today's standards, where cgi seems to rule the roost, then let us not forget that DePatie-Freleng actually helped out with the special effects on the original legendary Star wars film.

In short, Fantastic Four (1978) is fantastic for kids... and also for grown-ups who want to remember the good ol' days!

I've been waiting along time for this. Oh btw, the description is wrong; the Human Torch is not in this, he's replaced by Herbie The Robot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School FF 8 Oct 2012
By Darrell A. Lane - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When this first aired (back in the days of Pop Rocks, Boo Berry Cereal, Marvel Comics and KISS trading cards) only a few of these episodes aired, the one with the giant ape, which was a reworking of issue #24 of the comic book, the Magneto, Mole Man, Skrulls in Hollywood and Dr. Doom aired multiple times; the Frightful Four. Inhumans, Impossible Man and Dragon Man episodes aired once; the remaining four, including a second Dr. Doom episode were unaired in Indy. Network TV has never had a handle on these things. The art is primitive and H.E.R.B.I.E. is annoying, but I enjoyed a look back at my childhood nonetheless. All 13 episodes are as pristine as the artwork is apt to get, though I would have loved if they had remastered the color palate (Reed and Sue's gloves disappear at will). The Fantastic Four is my favorite comic book and I have the last three cartoon series and await the release of the 1960's run. Man, a bowl of Boo Berry cereal DOES sound good!

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware! 28 Dec 2013

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
purchased as a Christmas gift. Realized on Christmas day that the DVDS are from the UK and not compatible with standard dvd player. Tried to return the un opened remaining dvds purchased from same vendor. Time limit expired. I am now the owner of not one but three complete sets of vintage cartoons that will never be watched. These should never have been allowed to be sold in the us.
Description was very misleading.

2.0 out of 5 stars The description was misleading... 12 Sep 2013

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The content of the episodes was , I sure, fine. Fans of animation know that this was the wretched version of FF with Herbie the Robot, instead of the torch. However, I ordered it mostly for sentimental reasons, and the artwork, while crude, was based on Jack Kirby's work.
The problem is that even though the outfit is out of the UK, I saw NO indication in the ad that these DVDs were meant for the type of players used there!! Perhaps, it was noted somewhere, but I did not see it. Not sure if it's worth it to retuen it.
