Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes

  • The life of Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes was cut short due to erratic scheduling on Cartoon Network. The 26-episode series, which was produced by French-based animation company Moonscoop, aired on Cartoon Network on September 7, 2006, but only lasted seven episodes before being pulled from the schedule.

    The show returned in July 2007 to tie in with Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer but only aired another eleven episodes before pulling it again. The remaining eight episodes have since been seen on other networks such as Boomerang, and Canada's Teletoon.

    Just like the previous three Fantastic Four series, each episode of World's Greatest Heroes was taken directly from the early years of the comic books. However, what sets this series apart from the others is the modernization of the classic stories and reinterpretation of the characters, and a clever and humorous focus on the absurdity of the FF's lives.

    The character designs of the show are drastically different from anything fans had ever seen before, causing many to speak out against them due to their 'anime style'. The animation, while a bit limited, is some of the best these characters have ever seen, thanks to highly detailed artwork and the combination of 3D props and backgrounds.
