Super President and Spy Shadow

1 9 6 7 – 1 9 6 8 (USA)

James Norcross was the President of the United States (POTUS) and when he wasn’t busy running the country, he was busy saving it.

Due to a cosmic storm, President Norcross could change his molecules to any form he wanted. He also possessed super strength, the power of flight, and an assortment of other terrific powers (though it was never stated whether he had the power to balance the budget, fix the deficit, or raise the standard of living).

The other segment, Spy Shadow, featured detective Richard Vance, whose shadow was independent from his body (shades of Q.T. Hush). The shadow had a life of its own, often interfering with Vance’s mystery solving duties.

Unfortunately, the cartoon was not well received, and after less than one season vanished into the mist of time.
