The "Supers"


(Bear with me on this one. My youngest, "Clyde", has been sick the past couple of days. Many episodes of "Super Friends" have been viewed in 48-hours' time!)

Do you remember the "Super Friends" cartoons on Saturday TV? I believe they aired in the 70's. The characters varied, with different super heroes being part of the crew. The DVD set we have includes the characters above: Aquaman, Robin, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman (but also included the Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, with their monkey sidekick, Gleek).



But I digress.

I was just thinking how cool the premise of this show was. I mean, whenever there was a problem of any type, any where in the world, all of the military and governments had this direct "disaster" line to the Super Friends' Hall of Justice. The alert call would go something like this: "Super Friends, a huge mutant iceberg is swallowing up every ship in our navy! Please come help us!" And, no matter what the variety or size of the enemy or threat, the Super Friends always came through somehow. Amazing!

I think this is such a great concept. Imagine what the world would be like if we had such a thing in place? Super heroes to handle any disaster or threat...wow.

The really, really cool thing is that we do have a direct line: to God, Who is much more powerful and wise than the Super Friends. Wouldn't it be incredible if all the world leaders could grasp this???

I must say, the Superfriends are pretty powerful. In fact, I like them so much, I watched 8 episodes today.

I used to loooove the Super Friends (back when cartoons were limited to Saturdays). Perhaps they should be revived and be required viewing for the world's leaders. Perhaps the lessons would sink in.
