Cartoon Production Information:

The Fantastic Four are a group of superheroes that got transformed into what they are now by a cosmic storm in outer space. Reed Richards becomes Mr. Fantastic who is able to make his body stretch like rubber. Sue Storm-Richards becomes the Invisible Woman who is able to phase out at will. Ben Grimm becomes the Thing. And Herbie is their mascot.

With their new found powers and abilities they protect the Earth from intergalactic villains.

Though it is true that Johnny Storm/The Human Torch was not in this series, rumors that the reason was that the network was worried kids might light themselves on fire to imitate him is not factual. In 1997, Marvel licensed a number of their characters to Universal Studios to be developed as live-action TV-movies and series. A pilot of a Captain America show and the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno live-action The Incredible Hulk series were results of this license.

In 1978, when NBC decided to green light The Fantastic Four animated series, Universal still controlled the rights to The Human Torch character, but the remaining three characters were free. Universal would not sub-license The Human Torch to NBC, so a new character- H.E.R.B.I.E.- was developed for the show.

H.E.R.B.I.E. was conceived and named by Stan Lee and designed by Jack Kirby.

It is worth noting that The Fantastic Four cartoon series was produced out of the DePatie-Freleng studio on Van Nuys Boulevard in Van Nuys, California... a building that burned to the ground a year or so later.

Comments By:
The effect of the opening sequence in which we get the short version of the FF origin is hilarious as the Human Torch is replaced by . . . Herbie the Robot?? I guess the fire angle was seen as too, um, inflammatory for little kids in the 70's. Given that...  (read more)
