Animated #SciFi Rewind: Flash Gordon: The Greatest Adventure of All (1979) by Filmation

   This is what Flash Gordon was supposed to be before it was retooled for Saturday mornings in 1979-80. You can see the many parallels that it shares with the classic Sci-Fi Opera of the same time. I like that it is a period piece. Placing it roughly a decade ahead of the original serials of the 1930’s, Nazi Germany is getting assistance from Ming and Flash brings together the many peoples of Mongo to overthrow their oppressor. Take some time and enjoy this feature length jewel of American animation. Leave your thoughts below 🙂
