“Plastic Man”

Plastic Man, Plastic Man, does whatever a plastic can ….

Wait, I’m mixing up “Plastic Man” with “Spider-Man.”

The cartoon “The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show” ran from 1979 to 1981. It featured the adventures of the rubbery superhero Plastic Man, along with his cohorts Penny and Hula Hula. Plastic Man acquired the ability to stretch his body after being doused by acid. (And, he didn’t need four cups of coffee to be bouncing off the walls …)

The show also featured the adventures of Mighty Max, assisted by Yuk, the world’s ugliest dog. I remember Yuk’s head was covered by a dog house. And there was the“Rickety Rocket,” about four teenagers who run a detective agency along with their makeshift talking robot.

Here’s a clip from “The Plastic Man Comedy Adventure Show”:
