First aired: 1980
It seems that, in 1980, the idea of superheroes was still attracting an inordinate amount of camp and illogical, ill-thought out plot. Welcome to Super Friends, an amalgam of the DC heroes; debased and pantomimed for kids TV. Too harsh? Possibly, perhaps I was in the wrong mood when I picked this up on YouTube but it is worryingly pointless.
We are in the swamps of Africa and out of a doorway, above which is carved a giant bat, comes Vampirus the Voodoo Vampire looking for victims. At the time an expedition is travelling that area. They are harassed by a bat that then turns into Vampirus – recognised as such by the guide.

3 out of 10 for nostalgia back to the pantomime of superheroes. The episode's imdb page is here.
