VIDEO: Super Friends! “The Lord of Middle Earth”

It’s time again for Saturday Morning Glory, Ryan Lohner’s ongoing examination of bizarre Saturday morning cartoons!

From the same wellspring of insanity that gave us “The Mysterious Moles” comes another episode of Super Friends!This time out, it finally becomes apparent just how much weed was being smoked in the writers’ room at the time, as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Wonder Twins journey into a total rip-off of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

If your thing is watching DC superheroes being turned into trolls and having to fight spiders, snakes, dragons, and giant snails in a Random Fantasy Land lorded over by the Master, then “The Lord of Middle Earth” is just the episode for you!

The closest thing I could find is Super Friends: The Lost Episodes, which I’m sure features episodes just as stupid.nbsp;What the hell? “Lord of Middle Earth” is like one of eight Super Friends episodes not available on DVD.
