Silver Surfer Animated Series DVD
The Silver Surfer is an animated television series based on the Marvel Comics superhero which aired on Fox in 1998.
The Silver Surfer cartoons series was a very faithful retelling of the history of this classic comic character. A planet Zenn-La was threatened by the cosmic giant Galactus, a being that must drain whole planets of their life force for sustenance, Norrin Radd makes a bargain to be the scout for the being. He search for uninhabited planets in return for Zenn-La's survival. Galactus agrees and change the man into the powerful Silver Surfer, but he also submerges his humanity to remove his qualms about selecting populated planets for consumption. That suppression is only broken by an attack by the insane space villain, Thanos. With the knowledge of Galactus' treachery, he moves to stop the being just as he was going to consume Earth. The Surfer manages to stop him and breaks all ties to Galactus and in retaliation, Galactus whisks Zenn-La to an unknown location and now the former Herald must search for his lost home.
