The Kid Super Power Hour with Shazam!

The Kid Super Power Hour with Shazam! is an NBC Saturday-morning cartoon produced by Filmation Studios in 1981. The half-hour show included two cartoon stories, with a variety of live-action wraparound segments.

Hero High featured a group of students attending a high school for superheroes. This was a comedy originally planned to feature the characters from Archie Comics, but during development, production company Filmation terminated their relationship with the publishers, and the characters were turned into more generic versions of the same roles.

Shazam! was based on the DC Comics series of the same name, the adventures of Captain Marvel and his Marvel Family, including Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr., Uncle Marvel, and their tiger, Tawky Tawny. In the show, the team fights enemies like Doctor Sivana, Mister Mind, Black Adam, Mister Atom, Ibac, and more.

From time to time, the characters of one show would appear in the other. Isis from The Secrets of Isis also made a guest appearance in animated form on Hero High.
