Hanna–Barbera's World of Super Adventure is a 30-minute animated anthology wheel series produced by Hanna-Barbera which was broadcast in first-run syndication from 1978 to 1984.


The series was similar in scope to Hanna-Barbera's 1977–78 syndicated rerun anthology, Fred Flintstone and Friends. It was packaged together by Hanna-Barbera and featured a combination of the following seven Hanna-Barbera action-adventure Saturday morning cartoons that were originally broadcast by various networks:


Space Stars was a new updated version of this packaged series that ran on NBC from 1981–1982 which showcased new episodes of Space Ghost and The Herculoids, as well as the new shows Teen Force and Astro and the Space Mutts. It never reached the level of popularity as Super Adventures and was canceled after only one season.

The series was again repackaged in October 1992 as Super Adventures, when it was included in the debut schedule of the newly launched Cartoon Network, and featured an updated with a new intro and modified lineup. It contained the additional episodes featured in Space Stars. Finally, it added the thirteen The Thing segments from Fred and Barney Meet the Thing, the first seven episodes of Space Ace, Jonny Quest, Valley of the Dinosaurs, The Centurions, Mighty Man and Yukk, Godzilla, Thundarr the Barbarian and G-Force: Guardians of Space. It ran half-hour and two-hour shows on weekdays and weekends from October 1992 to July 1997. Spinoffs of the Super Adventures block included Power Zone (January 1995 as a weekend block, March 1996 as a weekday block) and Afternoon Adventures (September 1995).

Eventually, the Super Adventures franchise would be replaced with the legendary action block Toonami, which showed Space Ghost, Birdman, and Mighty Mightor as part of the Cartoon Roulette in their early years.

In the spring of 2000, Cartoon Network transferred the series to its sister channel Boomerang, now renamed "Boomeraction." The format was retooled yet again, this time as a varied hour show (it could run all day, for example.) It also added Arabian Knights, The New Adventures of Huck Finn, Super Friends, The Super Globetrotters, The Three Musketeers, and Rickety Rocket.

Opening narration

The opening title narration for the original 1978 broadcast was provided by Stanley Jones and consisted of the following message:
