The New Fantastic Four was an animated series produced by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises. The series is famous for not including the Human Torch/Johnny Storm character from the comics and replacing him with the original character of Herbie the robot (who would later appear in the original comics). This was due to the fact that the character of the Human Torch was optioned for a live-action version at around the same time, and not, as some people have mentioned, due to network concerns that children would set themselves on fire to emulate him.
The Fantastic Four is an animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and the first animated series based on Marvel's comic book series Fantastic Four. The program, featuring character designs by Alex Toth, aired on ABC from 1967 to 1970. It lasted for 20 episodes, with repeat episodes airing on ABC until the network cancelled the program. It was also rerun as part of the continuing series Hanna-Barbera's World of Super Adventure.Through a series of transactions, Disney currently holds the rights to the majority of Marvel's 1960s-1990s animated output. However, the 1967-1968 Fantastic Four was produced by Hanna-Barbera, whose library is now owned by Time Warner, making the series one of only a handful of Marvel-related TV projects not owned by Disney (which has since acquired Marvel outright). Time Warner is also the owner of Marvel's biggest competitor, DC Comics.

The Avengers: Earth'
This animated series follows the adventures of the superhero team The Avengers - primarily consisting of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, Ant-Man (a.k.a. Giant-Man), Wasp, Hawkeye, and the Black Panther - as they team up to save the world from dangers far too great for one superhero to handle alone. The Avengers frequently work with S.H.I.E.L.D., a peacekeeping agency run by Nick Fury (while the two aren't competing to save the world by their own means, which are often quite different).
When an experimental space voyage goes awry, four people are changed by the universe's cosmic rays. Reed Richards, inventor and leader of the group gains the ability to stretch his body, and takes the name, Mr. Fantastic. His girlfriend, Sue Storm, gains the ability to turn invisible and create force fields, becoming the Invisible Girl. Her little brother Johnny Storm gains the ability to control fire, including covering his own body with flame, like a Human Torch. Pilot Ben Grimm is turned into a super-strong rocky Thing. Together, this group of four must band together and discover new things about their new powers and use their unique powers to explore the strange aspects of the world, and to foil the evil plans of villians bent on world domination. Even as they deal with the various threats that arise to threaten Earth's peace, the Four must also deal with the pressures of fame as the world's most famous superheroes, and the realities of being a super-powered family.
