NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

The Marvel Superheroes is an animated superhero action program. It was the first show to be based on Marvel Comics characters. Each episode was made up of three segments, with Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and Prince Namor, The Sub Mariner each getting one episode a week. These episodes were composed of actual comic book panels from the stories being adapted for television, with only the mouths of the characters animated to move. It aired in syndication.

In the US, the only DVD containing any episodes were a Hulk DVD from a different show that included one Hulk episode from Marvel Superheroes. At one point, TVShowsonDVD.com reported that the entire series was going to be released in June 2005[1], but it was later pulled off the schedule[2] with no further news.

In Canada, a handful of episodes have been released on DVDs containing one Marvel Superheroes episode and one Spider-Man episode.

In the UK, the complete series has been released over five different sets, with each set focusing on one of the heroes.
