Take a Giant Step

Season: 1
Episode Number: 2
Season Episode Number: 2
Production Number: Unknown
Airdate: Unknown

Writer: George Kashdan
Director: Hal Sutherland

Voices: Ted Knight (Narrator), Ray Owens (Flash), Tommy Cook (Kid Flash), (Professor Krag).

Plot: Professor Krag has created a giant robot suit that he is using to destroy all the other scientist that mocked his work. Flash and Kid Flash try to stop him as quickly as possible.

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): Take a Giant Step is the second of three Flash episodes produced for the Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure in 1967. With a totally pathetic villain, a goofy looking robot suit, and an uninteresting plot, this episode takes the usually charming Filmation camp and brings it to a new low. This is probably the most boring episode out of all the DC Heroes segments.

This episode also features Kid Flash, who also appears in the three Teen Titans segments. You may notice that his costume is a bit different from what it looked like in the comics in 1967. His comic costume was yellow with red legs and brown hair, while the Filmation version reversed the colours, red costume with yellow legs, and changed his hair colour to black. No one is too sure why these changes were made.

The Flash's costume is pretty much the same except he's got a belt instead of a lighting bolt pattern around his waist.
