The Plastic Man TV cartoon intro (1979)

Plastic Man (TV Show) was one segment of seven, featured on The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show. The different segments included Plastic Man, Baby Plas, Plastic Family, Mighty Man and Yukk, Fangface and Fangpuss, and Rickety Rocket.


Overview of 'Plastic Man' Segment

Plastic Man, his girlfriend Penny, and his Polynesian sidekick Hula-Hula travel the world for a secret government agency and are given their assignments from the unnamed Chief to stop any threat to the world. Plastic Man often retains his sense of humor even in dangerous situations, such as a giant octopus capturing Penny and Hula-Hula causing him to comment "What Scout troop did he belong to"? In early episodes Penny has a crush on Plastic Man, who chooses to ignore it as he himself has a crush on the dark-haired female Chief. However, in the second season Plastic Man reciprocates Penny's crush on him and the two marry. The marriage produces a son who has the same powers as Plastic Man and spawns a lighter series of episodes featuring "Baby Plas" doing things such as saving his friends from neighborhood bullies.
