Challenge of the Superfriends is an American animated superhero TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera and DC Comics for ABC's Saturday morning line-up. It ran in 1978, airing 15 episodes. It was the third Super Friends series after the original 1973 series of the same name.

The Super Friends/Justice League are finally allowed to square off against their nemeses who have formed their own group, the Legion of Doom. But they are still certainly not allowed to fight, although the opening sequence does have them all fly into each other aggressively at the end.
