A rocket carrying four young people--scientific genius Reed Richards, his World War II buddy Ben Grimm, his wife Sue Richards and Sue's hot-headed brother Johnny Storm--is bombarded by cosmic rays while orbiting the Earth. The radiation gives them special powers: Richards can now stretch his limbs, Johnny can burst into flame, Sue can render herself invisible, while Ben has been physically transformed into a big orange rock and given super-strength.

Namor the Sub-Mariner never make an appearance on this cartoon due to starting in his own cartoon segment on "The Marvel Super Heroes" (1966) by Krantz Films. Dr. Gamma, the evil scientist that mutates into a creature called Gamma Ray and Prince Triton of Pacifica who fought against Warlord Atuma were original creations by Hanna-Barbera to take the place of Namor the Sub-Mariner when adapting "The Fantastic Four" issues #4 and #33 respectively. The Fantastic Four could not appear on the Sub-Mariner cartoon segment and were replaced by the X-Men (who were referred to as the Allies for Peace). See more »
I was never much of a Fantastic Four comic book reader but I must say that I highly enjoy this show. It was fun, exciting, and at times funny. Courtesy of the Thing! More over, it featured great villians like Doctor Doom. It's a great show for both fans and non-fans of the classic comic book characters.
