    ABC (ended 1980)
    Follow the adventures of Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Zan, Jayna, and Gleek! The World's Greatest Superfriends premiered on ABC Saturday, September 22, 1979 with the episode Rub Three Times for Disaster; the first of eight 30-minute episodes. This incarnation of the Superfriends followed the very successful run of Challenge of the Superfriends, which featured The Legion of Doom. In that series, the Superfriends battled the same foes in each episode. In The World's Greatest Superfriends, there is a different enemy in each episode. Stanley Jones reprises his role of Lex Luthor in the second episode of this series in a nice bit of continuity. The Wonder Twins and their space monkey Gleek also return after taking a hiatus during the last series. Other highlights of this series: the formation of Super Robin in The Superfriends Meet Frankenstein, the loss of Superman's memory and his thinking he's the Black Knight in Space Knights Of Camelon, and the chilling battle with the Evil Superfriends in Universe of Evil.moreless

    CBS (ended 1976)
    Thousands of years ago, Egyptian Queen Hatchupset was given an amulet by her Royal Wizard. This amulet empowered the queen with the powers of the goddess Isis; to command the elements of sky and earth. Flash forward to present time (1970's that is) young science teacher Andrea Thomas found this lost amulet while on an archaeological dig. She found she was heir to the "Secrets of Isis." By bearing the necklace that had the amulet, and calling out the phrase "OH MIGHTY ISIS," Andrea was transformed into Isis. As Isis, she could "soar as the falcon soars, run with the speed of gazelles, and command all the elements of sky and earth." In order to invoke her powers, she had to recite incantations. Her most famous incantation - "Oh zephyr winds which blow on high, lift me now so I can fly" - assisted her in taking flight. She also had control of animals, fire, water, etc. Her powers were usually used to help teach young people she came in contact with, a moral lesson. Her associates, Rick Mason, Cindy Lee, Dr. Barnes, and later, Rennie Carroll, were oblivious to her dual identity. Isis was seen as the female counterpart to Shazam (Captain Marvel). They had a few crossover episodes to each other's shows.moreless

    CBS (ended 1979)
    This live-action drama followed the exploits of Peter Parker, a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle. Peter is bitten by a radioactive spider while on an assignment and gains the abilities of a spider. He can cling to walls and has the proportional strength and agility of a human-sized arachnid. Peter is also a part time college student at a local University where he is majoring in science. After receiving his new abilities, he constructs unique web-shooters which he wears on his wrists over the costume in this version, and later on only one wrist which allow him to swing from building to building and to catch crooks in a massive web. This version of the wall-crawler's exploits suffered from a low effects budget and long periods of hiatus between episodes. Still it holds pride of being the first live-action version of the comic book hero. Over the thirty-plus years since the TV series first debuted, this show has become a cult favorite.moreless

    NBC (ended 1975)
    Astronauts Bill Hudson, Jeff Carter and Judy Franklin, orbiting in the NASA spacecraft Venture, are caught in a time warp in 1976. They crash land roughly two millennia later on a planet where intelligent apes are the dominant species and humans are helpless primitives which the apes refer to as "humanoids." Only later do they realize that it's Earth of the far future. In Ape City, the head of the Simian Senate is orangutan Dr. Zaius, who knows the truth about humans and apes. General Urko, in charge of the gorilla army, wants to wipe out the humanoid menace. He is also power-hungry and plots to seize control of the government by proving the military is superior. Chimpanzee scientists Zira and Cornelius are sympathetic to the endangered species since they subscribe to the theory that apes evolved from humanoids. They are the only apes who know about Bill's ability to speak and keep all of the astronauts' secrets. Zira has named Bill, "Blue Eyes" because he is the only blond human she has ever seen. Supporting characters include Nova, a female humanoid the astronauts have befriended, and Colonel Ron Brent, an astronaut from the 22nd century who also entered a time warp and arrived 15-20 years before the main characters. The series was based on "La Planéte des Singes" (The Monkey Planet) by Pierre Boulle and lasted only one season. Unlike its theatrical predecessors, the Planet of the Apes series of films, Return to the Planet of the Apes placed the apes in a society with architecture and technology approximating mid-20th century United States and realizes Boulle's original style and setting. DePatie-Freleng Enterprises produced the show, although the animation is often confused with the similar Filmation style. However, the detailed background drawings combined with often simplistic animation is more reminiscent of Hanna-Barbera's Jonny Quest.moreless

    Welcome to the Raffles guide at TV.com. A. J. Raffles is a dashing late-Victorian English gentleman of impeccable credentials - a member of the very best clubs, a first class cricketer, a resident of London's ultra-pukka Albany. However, his social standing is just not matched by his private income, and in the absence of funds Raffles has adopted the career of 'amateur cracksman' to the nobility and gentry - that is, jewel thief. Harry 'Bunny' Manders is an old school friend of Raffles and is equally hard up, so he becomes a partner in the adventure of stealing from the rich to give to - well, to pay one's wine-merchant's and one's tailors' bills, anyway, and perhaps one's rent and one's gambling debts. Bunny is not altogether as bright as Raffles, but nevertheless he is more of a help than a hindrance, saving the day on more than one occasion. The pair do not see themselves as common criminals. Apart from a little honest thievery, they maintain high moral standards, and on occasion do a little detective work - or even crime-fighting - of their own. Inspector MacKenzie is the policeman with the job of catching the amateur cracksman - so once A.J. Raffles has come under his suspicion, MacKenzie has to be outwitted. Based on the stories by E.W. Hornung.moreless

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1980)
    Young Maverick was an interesting concept for a show. It was basically a sequel, albeit some 20 years after the extremely popular original Maverick aired, and it centered around original characters Bret and Bart's younger cousin Ben (played by Charles Frank), who was a suave gambler in his own right, complete with a college degree from Harvard University. What Young Maverick had in potential, it fell short of in substance, with none of the wry humor the classic show had, as well as only featuring original Maverick star James Garner in the pilot episode. This lack of spark doomed the show to a brief two month run before it was canceled and rarely heard about again.moreless
