Animated World of DC Comics: Super Friends vs. The Ghost (1977)

Only two super villains from the comics appeared during The All-New Super Friends Hour. One was Hawkman's enemy, the Gentleman Ghost, the ghost of highwayman "Gentleman Jim" Craddock, who menaced our heroes in the season finale, which aired 2 weeks before Christmas.

Richard Paul (Carter Country) was credited as Craddock, but others claim veteran Alan Oppenheimer (ex-The Six Million Dollar Man) actually essayed the part. Judge for yourselves.

Unfortunately, Craddock, who would resurface in the comics as a frenemy of Hawkman a decade later, was not used again. He actually didn't battle Wonder Woman or Superman at all in the comics.

Rating: B+.
