So I've been watching the Fox Kids version of Silver Surfer lately..  it's an interesting storyline for the silvered one... semi-entertaining.  Although, I don't suppose it's quite on par with the craft of 90's X-Men or the animated Batman series.

I'm pretty sure this show is nearly a decade old.  Perhaps it lasted for a season or two.

There's a Silver Surfer cartoon? I must say I'm surprised. He's hardly ever been the most reliably popular Marvel character. Well loved, but not by enough.

They basically re-write the entire canon of the Silver Surfer's story... but I think it's actually probably better.  It only lasted for a single season.... and I don't think it was watched by that many.... I saw a few episodes when it first aired, but didn't invest enough to watch it through.

It is very similar to the 90's X-Men in its animation style and even the later story-telling of that series.... which is really kind of what it is... an extension into space that the X-Men were starting to explore... although it has no ties story-wise with that show, it retains many of the voice actors from that series.


Netflix has the entire series.

I think it was a spin-off of the 90s Fantastic Four cartoon.  All of the Marvel superhero cartoons from the 90s seemed to be part of a shared universe.  The 90s Spider-Man cartoon had cross-overs with the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four crossed-over with the Hulk cartoon.  So if the Silver Surfer cartoon seems similar to the 90s X-Men, that's probably why.

I dunno, he was pretty popular back in the day.  I mean, he had his own solo series, and he was a founding member of the Defenders.  Not bad for a character that Jack Kirby created as an afterthought.
