When did Marvel bring comics to Television like the cartoon Batman and Robin?


Batman and Robin are characters from DC Comics, not Marvel Comics. The earliest live-action TV show of Batman and Robin aired in the 60s, and the newer animated Batman and Robin show has been around since the early 90s.

Although Batman came to television in the 1960's, this was not the first time he had come to the screen. A very dynamic set of Batman serials were produced for movie theatres during the 1940s.

Marvel's characters include: Spider-man, Iron man, The Hulk, Thor, The Fantastic Four, Submariner, Captain America, Daredevil, Punisher, and the X-men.

Further examples of DC Characters are: Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Wonder Woman.

On a further note Spider-Man was first released as an animated series in 1967 I believe, and that was Marvel's first cartoon series where as Superman had been animated as shorts for years at that point.


One year before the first Spider-Man cartoon, in 1966, there was a cartoon series called "Marvel Super-Heroes" that ran five days a week. The animation was very, very crude, but the stories followed the comic books pretty closely. Each night of the week featured a different Marvel hero. Monday through Friday, respectively, had: Captain America, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Sub-Mariner.
