Hanna-Barbera expanded on its universe of super adventure in 1967, taking viewers to the jungle world of Amzot, later renamed Quasar, home of The Herculoids.
Zandor (Mike Road, ex-Jonny Quest) was the team leader and unofficial ruler of his world, as we rarely, if at all, saw any other humans on Amzot, aside from Zandor's wife, Tara, and their son, Dorno (Ted Eccles). The emphasis was on the collection of creatures that formed the Herculoids. Spm1975 uploaded this open, narrated by Road:
Unbelievably, Road was also the voice behind most of the Herculoids, if not all of them. Who knew he had that kind of talent in him? Road & Virginia Gregg (Tara) were the lone cast members to return when the series was revived as part of the 1981 Space Stars series, which would mark the end of his association with Hanna-Barbera. Today, reruns of the series pop up from time to time on Boomerang, usually in late night, and the series was just recently released on DVD. Could the Herculoids return to action in the near future? As long as it's done right!!
