Marvel Super-Heroes: The Origin of Captain America!

The Marvel Super-Heroes Cartoon burst into the syndicated scene in 1966. Produced by Grantway-Lawrence (who would later do the hyphenless "Spiderman"), these limited animation cartoons featured stories taken directly from the comics -- in more ways than one! Original artwork from the comics was photostatted and enlarged to create the cels, and in some instances, artwork from different artists would end up in the same episode! Derided by many, these cartoons still have a nice charm to them, I think!

Featured in these cartoons were Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, and Sub-Mariner. This week's installment features the Origin of Captain America, compiled from Cap episodes 1-3!

NOTE: Sorry the original video was unavailable, but here's a replacement!
