This show was a Saturday …
This show was a Saturday morning cartoon that was made by Filmation Productions and it was a whole hour. It featured two segments, "Shazam!" and "Hero High." "Shazam!" featured a boy named Billy Batson, and whenever he spoke the name "Shazam!", he would transform into a superhero named "Captain Marvel." "He had a twin sister, Mary Batson who could become Mary Marvel by saying "Shazam" and a friend named Freddy Freeman who became Captain Marvel Junior by saying "Captain Marvel" All the powers of six great gods and heroes have been gathered together and placed in the hands of boy broadcaster, Billy Batson. Whenever he says the name of the ancient wizard,"Shazam", he becomes the World's mightiest mortal Captain Marvel! When evil has been defeated, Captain Marvel says the word again to become Billy. So amazing and sudden is the change that most people never realize what has happened. Solomon-Wisdom Hercules- Strength Atlas- stamina Zeus- Power Achilles- Courage Mercury- Speed (Mary's) Selena- Grace Hippolyta- Strength Ariadne: Skill Zephyrus- speed Aurora- beauty Minerva- Wisdom I have this theory that Aurora was so beautiful, nothing could hurt her- "too beautiful for the sun to burn or the wind to pick upon" and thus grants Mary Marvel invulnerability of body while Minerva grants invulnerability of mind. Since the Cap is, Lord love him, a klutz, Mary having skill and grace could definitely come in handy. "Hero High" focused on the adventures of super powered teenagers in high school that are learning how to be superheroes. Mr. Samson's the (elderly) principal & Miss Grimm's the teacher. The seven main students were; Captain California, Glorious Gal, Rex Ruthless, Dirty Trixie, Weatherman, Misty Magic & Punk Rock. Extra characters include; Awol (a kid who could disappear), Bratman (little boy who cried & threw super tantrums), Peter Penguin (a trench-coat wearing bird ala Harpo Marx) & Giggler the hyena (who hanged with Rex & Trixie), Police Chief Hardy (Misty Magic's uncle who ran the police force). Two cartoons per week, one at their high school while another had them solving cases with Chief Hardy. There's also 4 live action segments featuring the seven Hero High characters. One would be the song of the week while the other three would be sketches that had corny jokes (think of it as either Laugh In Jr. or Hee Haw Jr.) When Filmation had this idea, they wanted to use the Archie characters & title it Super Archies (Punk Rock & Misty Magic would've been the outside characters). But they lost the rights to Archie, they had to restructure the show.

The series is actually called Flash Gordon but the expanded title is used in official records to distinguish it from previous versions. Filmation produced the series in 1979, partly as a reaction to the mammoth success of Star Wars in 1977. The series was a homage to the original Flash Gordon comic strip and featured most of the original characters, including Flash's girlfriend Dale Arden, and the scientist Hans Zarkov. The series is still regarded as one of the most faithful adaptations, and one of Filmation's finest overall efforts.
