Remember the Silver Surfer?

An old pal, cartoonist Shannon Eric Denton, pointed out that Disney XD is showing reruns of the Silver Surfer cartoon he designed. According to Shannon, he went as Kirby as he could get away with in designing the Surfer, and it shows. The show ran a season in 1998, combining CGI with line art, and sadly didn't continue due to Marvel's bankruptcy problems. Episodes of Surfer (along with Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, and other old Marvel animateds) are being aired on Disney XD.
