The World's Greatest Super Friends is an American animated television series about a team of superheroes which ran from September 22, 1979 to September 27, 1980[2] on ABC. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera and is based on the Justice League and associated comic book characters published by DC Comics.



This particular incarnation of Super Friends relied heavily on folklore and classic fairy tales for plots. One episode in particular, "The Lord of Middle Earth", was inspired by the Lord of the Rings novels, in which the team journeys to Middle Earth to save the inhabitants from an evil wizard. The series also borrowed from (then) contemporary politics, as the main villain Kareem Azar in "Rub Three Times For Disaster" is almost a carbon copy of the Ayatollah Khomenei.
