Legends of the Superheroes is a series of two live-action TV specials produced by Hanna-Barbera for NBC in 1979. It features characters from DC Comics.


These specials follow the adventures of many of DC Comics' greatest superheroes and villians. In the first episode, "The Challenge", the superheroes must race against time to stop the diabolical supervillians' plot to destroy the world. In the second episode, "The Roast", the superheroes pay tribute to Batman and Robin in the form of a roast which even the villains attend.

The producers were unable to use the characters of Superman and Wonder Woman (featured in the original Super Friends) since Superman had just been launched into a film franchise, and Wonder Woman had her own series on another network.
