The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure was a Filmation animated series that aired on CBS from 1967 to 1968. Premiering on September 9, 1967, this 60-minute program included a series of six-minute adventures featuring various DC Comics superheroes.
Each episode consisted of new segments from the existing series The New Adventures of Superman, and new adventures featuring Aquaman and his sidekick Aqualad.
It also included a rotating series of 'guest star' cartoons featuring the Atom, the Flash and Kid Flash, the Green Lantern, Hawkman and new shorts from The Adventures of Superboy. The Justice League of America (Atom, Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman and Superman) and Teen Titans (Speedy, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl and Aqualad) were also featured in team adventures.
This series marked the animation debut of nearly all of its featured characters and teams. The exceptions were Superman and his supporting cast, who had been previously immortalized in the iconic 1940s Superman shorts (and later in the The New Adventures of Superman), and the Superboy characters, seen in the previous season of The Adventures of Superboy.
In 1968 the show was repackaged as Aquaman, a 30-minute version without the Superman and Superboy segments but including the 'guest star' shorts.
