Its a good time to be a fan of Marvels Fantastic Four comics. With 20th Century Foxs big-budget, live-action feature set to debut in theaters in July 8, Cartoon Network’s Boomerang is gearing up for primetime airings of the classic 1967 Fantastic Four animated series. The mini-marathons will air on Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3, from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. (ET).
Boomerangs Fantastic Four tribute will feature all 19 half-hour episodes from the original production without commercial interruption. Produced for the ABC network by Hanna-Barbera in association with Marvel Comics, the series brought to animated life the adventures of Reed (Mr. Fantastic) Richards, Sue (the Invisible Woman) Richards, Johnny (the Human Torch) Storm and Ben (The Thing) Grimm. Long before The Incredibles was conceived, this superhero family created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby thrilled fans with their legendary battles against the evil Doctor Doom.
