YMMV / The Marvel Super Heroes

  • Crowning Momentof Heartwarming : The Fantastic Four were off limits to this version of Namor's story due to their rights already being claimed by Hanna-Barbera for The Fantastic Four (1967), so they reworked Namor's comic book memory loss, with no runaway Johnny Storm to revive him. Instead, Namor is seemingly menaced by two men working for an old woman using Agatha Harkness' image model. In the end, they gain custody of Namor and bring him to the old woman, who turns out to be Namor's paternal grandmother, who tells him of his origins, and who only wanted to meet her grandson, implied to be before her time came. Just for a moment, Namor is just a boy meeting his Grandma, and his happiness is obvious.
  • Earworm: ALL the songs. Hear the main theme here.
  • Narm Charm: Yes, the show had a minuscule budget to rival Clutch Cargo's cheapness. However, given that the stories are largely adapted from the original stories as is with art by masters like Jack Kirby, the series captured the wild energy of the Silver Age Marvel comics as a prescient forerunner of Motion Comics.
  • Painful Rhyme: Every single rhyme in every single theme song from this series, and no, that's not an exaggeration. "Latest/greatest/ultimate-est," anyone?
    • Super powered from the forehead to the toes! / Watch 'em change their very shape before your nose!
    • Wheeeen Captain America throws his mighty shiiiieeeld / all those who chose to oppose his shield must YIIIEEELD... / When he's led to a fight and a duel is due / Then the red and the white and the blue'll come through...
    • Doc Bruce Banner, belted by gamma rays / Turned into the Hulk. Ain't he unglamo-rays?
