    Based on the Marvel's comics of the hero Iron Man and his adventures.

    Probably my first - and the last - cartoon I've watched from this era.

    I am yet to get into reading the Iron Man comics, but when I watched the cartoon episodes, I could see how those could have been taken directly from a comic.

    If we skip the rather faltering animation (hey, this is a 1966 show we're talking about, and they did things differently back then), we get into what the show is like.

    The storytelling is trippy at best. It jumps from one thing to another, explains rather than shows (again, this might be a quirk of the shows of that era). Knowing what kind of stories the writers of Marvel com-ics are able to sketch, it is almost a shame to see them killed this way.

    There is no character depth, and each episode seems very hurried.

    All in all, this show was a rather amusing thing to watch a horrid comical relief to a modern age's child.moreless

    In this time with the complete 60's series of spider-man and Hulk episodes i the DVD maybe noone remembers of Iron-man, a masterpiece for its age, and a darker story, with a song so representative and plots simples but interesants it's fun to see the cartoon and feel a lil of that Cold War fear in the air, because man this was a very politic show if you can see it deeply, I'm just looking forward for the DVD, one DVD I must have.moreless

    "The Invicible Iron Man" was the 1966 animated cartoon series by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby which featured one of the first comic book contributions as a director from world famous

    Ralph Bakshi.

    The show followed the adventures of rich socialist and scientist Anthony "Tony" Stark who leads a double life as a crime fighter known as "Iron Man". Very much like Bruce

    Wayne, Stark was a "player" who enjoyed the best things in life such as fast cars, and women

    This is the first show I edited for

    , while the show is rather dated, one can

    see how Stan Lee tried to break out of his

    usual comic routines with the Hulk and Spiderman

    by giving us a slightly more conservative

    character in Tony Stark.

    The animation is typical Marvel, rather slow

    but effective at times drawing frames of animation

    very much like a comic book. The animation

    then provided a familiar styles for fans to

    follow and observe the action. There were

    a couple of good moral issues in the show as

    well like a typical Marvel cartoon.moreless
