The Herculoids 1967 ..."First Animated Cartoon With Dinosaurs and Spaceships Believe It or Not !"


Talking about some really cool animation with spaceships and dinosaurs and alien creatures, you couldn't go wrong on Saturday morning in 1967. The space family which wore prehistoric cave dwelling clothing and lived on planet Amzot. Zandor (the father), Tara (mother) and Doro (son) protect themselves with some pretty cool pets..."I guess you could call them that". The pets are called the Herculoids and they are: Zok the laser dragon who can shoot a laser beam from its tail, Tundro a rhino that shoots out balls of rocks from its horn, Igoo who is ape made of rock which has incredible strength, and Gloop and Gleep that are blob like creatures that can shape shift. They fought off robots, mad scientist, mutants and many more weird villains that attacked their planet.

The animated cartoon debuted on September 9th, 1967, on CBS and was produced by Hanna-Barbera and ended September 6th,1969. They were created and designed by Alex Toth. 

I was just starting high school when this cartoon came out and being a sci-fi fan back then made me really enjoy the "Herculoids". Here is the voices of the characters....

  • Mike Road - Zandor, Zok, Tundro
  • Virginia Gregg - Tara
  • Don Messick - Gleep, Gloop
  • Ted Eccles - Dorno
  • Ted Cassidy - Igoo
Ok, no more talk: but if you need more detailed info, please use my wiki search bar at the top of my blog. Here is a Herculoid cartoon......
