Peter Cullen's performances in this show were definitely the highlight of this show. Mysterio & Red Skull are brilliant. It's also a good example of Cullen's range seeing as most people are more familiar with his Optimus Prime & Eeyore voices.

@Shaun Ince As I said before, all the villain performers were great in this show. Cullen is no exception.

And as I mentioned in my comment below, all the villains had some of the best evil laughs I've ever heard. You can hear some of them here:

Along with the 1967 Fantastic Four, the 1967 Spidey cartoons, the 1989 X-Men pilot and the 1982 Hulk cartoon, this is one of the best Marvel cartoons I've ever seen. All the stories, casting choices, voice direction and performances were perfect.

This show also gave us some of the best evil laughs ever. Whether it be Dennis Marks with his Green Goblin's cackle or Hans Conried's delightful Captain Hook laugh for the Chameleon, every villain was excellently portrayed.

Also, the use of radio veterans like Hans Conried, Shepard Menken, Michael Rye and June Foray was a great addition to this show (and something the solo cartoon really lacked). Also, you get stage veteran William Marshall, who had one of the most awesome deep voices I've ever heard, as the Juggernaut and Tony Stark.

It saddens me that this show, along with the others I've mentioned above, is becoming extremely underrated. I mean, come on guys. Old people know a lot more than us, and that makes us respect them. Why can't we respect old TV shows???

Anyway, this show was one of the best Marvel ever did.

@Starscreamsfan "Why can't we respect old tv shows???"

Possibly because they can feel dated, be it from writing, animation or Voice Acting standards.

Lack of personal connections to older shows can also play a factor.

For Example, I prefer later versions of Scooby Doo (in particular 'What's New Scooby Doo') partly because I find Daphne to be less of a flaccid damsel in distress than she was in the original Hanna Barberra cartoons. That and there was less distracting recycled animation footage.

That's the best explanation I can think of.

@EPA Deane Animation, yes. However, I honestly think the writing in this show was really good. Really witty old timey writing which calls back to the old radio days.

Plus, the actors are really having a blast doing all these quirky and fun performances. I have seen shows that have dated badly (the 1978 Fantastic Four cartoon), but this one is not one of them. I really think this show is still fun to this day.

@Starscreamsfan 'Quirky and fun performance's' can sometimes be ill fitting for specific characters (Australian Wolverine voices? REALLY?).

'Old Timey Writing' can also lead to flat characterisation and a lack of subtlety (There's a reason why I preferred Hordak to Skeletor as a main villain).

@EPA Deane Well, I really prefer to hear performers having fun and really getting into the character (Hans Conried's Chameleon, Michael Rye's Magneto and Shepard Menken's Dr. Doom are perfect examples of that).

And seriously, you need to listen to more radio shows.

Wit and sense of humor is something that is constantly getting lost in TV shows nowadays, which is why I don't watch a lot of TV as of now.

@Starscreamsfan I'm partial to Agatha Christie and Francis Durbridge radio dramatisations actually.

The UK doesn't have that many Superhero Radio Serials.

@EPA Deane Well, if you want a recommendation, check the 1940s Superman radio show. It has great acting and really good writing (the Atom Man saga is really engaging).
