The World's Greatest Superfriends is one of the animated series in Hanna-Barbera's Superfriends franchise on ABC. Eight half-hour episodes were produced for the 1979/80 season.

The World's Greatest Superfriends was rebroadcast during the 1982/83 season, as a lead-in to The Pac-Man/Little Rascals/Richie Rich Show, possibly as a placeholder due to not enough cartoon series being produced for that season. 1982 animators' strike may have been a contributing factor.

This series marked the return of Zan, Jayna and Gleek, who were absent from Challenge of the Superfriends, and featured a different villain in each episode.
