    Not too eager to see Shazzan as his whole point seemed to be a deus ex machina character, there was no real tension to his stories as his magic seemed able to do anything, it had the appeal of a cat playing with a caught mouse. The ending being a foregone conclusion, the only question as to how creative he could be in dragging it out to fill the time slot.

I'm sure they'll find a way to limit him, or come up with a threat imposing enough he can't immediately defeat.

    We're missing all the Scooby Doo riffs, though it would be cool to see a serious take on the Blue Falcon here as a competent and respected superhero (just leave Dynomutt at home, even as a kid I never cared for him, more useless than Robin).

I considered Blue Falcon, but I suspect this is specifically a 70's riff and he came later (and there isn't much of a way to do without Dynamutt really). Likewise Captain Planet came later.

    Also no hint of Devlin which was a fairly straight forward serious adventure/mystery cartoon, one of my favorites as a kid because of that.

Oh! I did not remember these guys at all! I absolutely hope they make an appearance.

Inch High would be a nice addition as well.
