Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Super President vs. The Day of the Locusts (1967)

Super President battles a horde of locusts, trained by a Middle Eastern madman, in "Day of the Locusts". Paul Frees narrates and is also the voice of President James Norcross, aka Super President.

Today, a bad guy like Hassan al Batani would be doing something far more sinister than using locusts. It only shows that even then, certain Middle Eastern types were stereotyped, if you will, as bad guys, if but because the writers didn't want their star facing just American villains. Small wonder people hated on this show.

Rating: B-.
