Thoughts on Popular Culture and Unpopular Culture by Jaime J. Weinman (email me)
My all-time favorite is when, to defeat the sun creatures that are setting Metropolis ablaze, Aquaman opens up the Metropolis Reservoir, dousing the flame creatures and -- oops -- flooding the city.And I wouldn't get my full nerd credit if I didn't point out that that clip is from the 60s Filmation cartoons rather than the HB Superfriends show.
Ah, yes. The famous "don't worry, Aquaman" moment.
... but there are no sun creatures or reservoir in that second clip. Don't tell me Aquaman did this twice?
Yet there are people on this planet who still swear Hanna-Barbera's cartoons were the best.
Stephen: Yes. Twice. In an ep of "World's Greatest Superfriends" called "Lex Luthor Strikes Back," Aquaman once again managed to flood a large metropolitan area.
