The best Super Friends inspired videos - VIDEO
Do not adjust your web browser. You are now entering the Retro Squad, where we are reviewing past episodes of classic TV shows.
Ever since they appeared on Saturday morning, The Super Friends have been a veritable gold mine for wacky videos. The following is a short list of some of my favorite short videos starring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the gang.
Super Friends Wassup
This has to be my favorite. Right about the time we were all sick of the Wassup guys, this video hit the internet. My favorite part is the far shot of Robin.
Without giving too much away, this video uses audio from Rocky 3 and borrows from both Super Friends and the Mr. T cartoon to show us an alternate world where Hawkman sounds like he smokes three packs a day.
PowerPuff Girls Save the Super Friends
Fans of Cartoon Network are well-acquainted with their awesome self-promotion. This particular one is great because it acknowledges the fact that Wonder Woman has an incredible figure and Aquaman is a complete tool. It also illustrates that while the Legion of Doom may be inept at criminal activities they, at least, have a sense of humor.
Mike Toomey's TV & Me
Toomey is one of the funniest undiscovered comics working today. His act is chock full of awesome TV and movie references. This clip features his hilarious impression of Ted Knight as the Super Friends narrator. Do yourself a favor and check out some of Toomey's other clips. Unlike Dane Cook, Toomey actually makes jokes to go along with his references.
Super Friends - The Enforcer
This video appeals to me on a very basic level. The audio is from Sarah Silverman's small role in The Way of the Gun and always makes me laugh. If you are watching this at work, I suggest you either use headphones or turn the volume up full blast.
