The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show




  • Episode Guide

    Ruby/Spears Productions produced their first show based on a comic book superhero in 1979 for ABC. The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show featured the adventures of Plastic Man and his two sidekicks, Penny, who had a crush on Plas, and Hula Hula, the Polynesian comic relief.

    Information on episode order and format of the show is disputed over the few websites that have this information. Here is what I have come to understand:

    The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show was a two hour long program that featured Plastic Man and a variety of other cartoon characters. The first hour of the show would include a half hour Plastic Man episode, a fifteen minute Fangface & Fangpuss episode, and a fifteen minute Mighty Man & Yukk! episode. The second hour would include a half hour Rickety Rocket episode, a fifteen minute Plastic Man episode and a fifteen minute Mighty Man & Yukk! episode.

    The show was cut down to half an hour in 1980 and featured only Plastic Man along with his now wife, Penny and child, Baby Plas. The show was renamed The Plastic Man - Baby Plas Super Comedy Show.
