Canceled due to studio politics, the Silver Surfer animated series is one of the more distinctive parts of the Marvel nineties TV canon. The 13 episode season, the first and only, ran from February 1998 to May 1998 on Fox Kids as part of the ongoing relationship Marvel had with Saban Entertainment. Unfortunately, mid-production of this show, the two companies parted ways, and this cartoon was one of the casualties.
Thanks to Disney+, fans all around the world will be able to watch Silver Surfer online, as Silver Surfer will now be streaming in full. Developed by Larry Brody under the leadership of Vice President of Fox Kids Sidney Iwanter, the series merged CGI and cel-shading animation to some impressive results, even by today’s standards, and in the wake of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, serves a reminder of what’s achievable within comic book adaptations.
