1978 AnimatedAdaptation of MarvelUniverse SuperHero team '''''The Comicbook/FantasticFour'''''. The one with the [[RobotBuddy cute robot]] taking the place of the Human Torch, [[ExiledFromContinuity who was tied up in a separate film deal at the time]].

----
!!''The Fantastic Four'' provides examples of:

* AbridgedSeries: Sometimes this show gets redubbed in DisneyXD's ''WesternAnimation/MarvelMashUp''.
* CanonImmigrant: H.E.R.B.I.E.
* DontTryThisAtHome: Averted, despite popular belief. An urban legend posits that The Human Torch was replaced by H.E.R.B.I.E. at the insistent demand of the network, out of fears that children would set themselves on fire to emulate their hero. The legend was aided by a later issue of the comic in which a kid dies doing just that, and later recollections in the Marvel house magazine ''Marvel Age'' which seemed to confirm the rumor. In reality, as mentioned above, the rights had been negotiated separately for a project that never materialized and the Torch character was unavailable (the same snarls prevented the Torch from being one of the "Amazing Friends" in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends'').
* ExiledFromContinuity: The Torch. See above.
* Creator/FrankWelker: The VA for H.E.R.B.I.E and Impossible Man (and their first VA as well)
* FunWithAcronyms: '''H'''umanoid '''E'''xperimental '''R'''obot, '''B'''-type, '''I'''ntegrated '''E'''lectronics
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes
* LargeHam: Several villains, but especially Magneto.
* MarvelUniverse
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Or rather, it isn't anymore -- but the lines could've been taken directly from SilverAge comic scripts, so you see about how a comic book would sound in life. (The answer, by the way, is "hilarious.") You get characters taking forever as they overdramatically describe what they're going to do, and actually doing it goes on to take half a second. No one ''ever'' tries to stop the enemy standing two feet away giving long dissertation on exactly how he or she is about to attack.
* TheNotableNumeral
* RobotNames: See above.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: The Torch
* SuperHero
* UrbanLegends: It was rumored that the reason for Human Torch's omission was concern that impressionable children would set themselves on fire in an attempt to mimick his powers.
