Super Friends Autographed Script

sgNo, I'm not lucky enough to have a genuine autographed Super Friends script. This little beauty comes from F.O.A.M. member Russell Burbage, who generously sent me a copy of it so I could post it here.

According to Russell, DC once ran the mailing address of Super Friends head writer Jeffrey Scott on the letters page to the Super Friends tie-in comic(how the heck did I miss that?), so young Russell got out his crayons and sent out a missive.

Soon after, he received an autographed SF script! How cool is that? The inscription says: "To Russell Burbage--glad you're enjoying the show! Jeffrey Scott." Below are some pages from the script--as you could guess, I picked some that show Aquaman the most prominently. You can see how influential those Alex Toth intial designs were, even though he didn't actually work on the individual episodes:


Cool-o! Thanks, Russell!

Wow! That's awesome. My only problem with it is the art on the cover. Ain't no way Robin is gonna outrun Aquaman. Why oh why is always delegated to the rear??

Hey, this looks good! Thanks for using it. It is my pride and joy, and an early lesson (I was maybe 13 when I got it?) that asking for Aquaman stuff from like-minded people *could* in fact pay off. :-)
