Television has been a big influence on our lives since the 1950s.

Action figure and comic books have been a part of television’s success since the debut of the Adventures of Superman starring George Reaves in 1952.


Action figure and comic books and other theme related stories and characters have been a gold mine for TV shows.

Television have produced classics like Star Trek starring William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, Batman starring Adam West, the Incredible Hulk starring Bill Bixby, Wonder Woman starring Lynda Carter, The Six Million Dollar Man starring Lee Majors, the Bionic Woman starring Lindsay Wagner, Battlestar Galactica starring Lorne Greene and Richard Hatch, Young Indiana Jones, Lois and Clark the New Adventures of Superman, Star Trek the Next Generation all the up to Smallville starring Tom Welling to name some of the more recognized shows of the last 60 years.


There have been several made for TV movies and pilots featuring the aforementioned Hulk, Battlestar Galactica, The Six Million Dollar Man, Wonder Woman, Bionic Woman, Captain America and many others.

Another Superman show has been credited for helping launch Saturday morning cartoon. 

The New Adventures of Superman debuted in 1966 which was among the first cartoon shows on television and soon to follow were a hoard of cartoon and animated shows and live-action shows based on action figure and comic books. 


Speed Racer, Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, Captain America, Hulk, Mighty Thor, Star Trek Animated Series, The Super Friends, Shazam, Isis, Challenge of the Super Friends, Spider-Man (1967, 1981, 1994, 2003), New Adventures of Batman.

Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Spectacular Spider-Man, Fantastic Four (1967, 1978, 1994, 2005), Super Powers, the Transformers, GI Joe, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

X-Men, Iron Man, Batman the Animated Series, Superman the Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, Avengers United They Stand, Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, X-Men Evolution, Wolverine and the X-Men, Star Wars Clone Wars would fill up TV time slots on Saturday morning, after school and in prime time. 

These shows are still found in syndication well after their original air dates.



Most of these have made its way to the video and DVD market where long-time fans and new fans can enjoy these as they originally appeared many years ago. 

Most of these shows have been adapted into action figure toy lines and comic books.

Some have had a couple of different adaptations.  An example would be Battlestar Galactica which has seen a couple of different companies at different times in the last 40 years - one back in the 1970s and one in the last couple of years producing the characters into figures and vehicles in a few different scales - 3-3/4 inch, 6 to 7 inches and 12 inches.

There are many more shows that have been re-adapted and re-interpreted for a new generation of collectors and fans.

TV shows and action figures and comic books seem to go hand in hand and there are never any limitations to the next great concept idea.

I have created a few pages on my site separating into different categories - DC Comic TV shows and DC Animated TV shows, Marvel Comic TV shows and Marvel Animated TV shows, Science Fiction TV shows, Science Fiction animated TV shows, Fantasy and other theme-related TV shows and Fantasy and other theme-related animated TV shows (these will be added later) where you can read about the most popular TV shows as well as some of the smaller shows that have come to life and have had a direct impact on the action figure and comic book hobbies.

Have fun reading about your favorite shows.

Happy Collecting!!!
