Saturday Morning Cartoons: Iron Man, Smooth Jazz Style
With Iron Man 2 coming to theaters soon, and fan anticipation at an all time high, we figured it might be fun to take a leap back in time. Here’s a little ‘Iron Man’ ala 1966. Enjoy the smooth jazz theme song! Marvel at the fluid animotion! Revel with each CLANG! POW! and ZZZOOOOOOM! You’ll gasp at the revelation that Happy knew all along!
This wonderfully cut episode pits Iron Man against Titanium Man. We personally love the whole “Radio Show” feel of the piece. And Gene Colan’s Iron Man design is timeless. Of course the special effects are… well… amazing. And the voice acting? Well, it’s not quite Robert Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke, but it should put a lil’ twinkle in yer eyes. So, without further adieu, enjoy the “Cool exec with the heart of steel…”
