Howard Morris in Atom Ant (1965)

If you grew up in the 60's, then you're probably familiar with Atom Ant. His popularity waned in the 70's and remains relatively obscure today. Atom Ant was a super hero cartoon character who used his powers to fight crime. His diminutive size gave crooks a false sense of security until they found themselves hoisted in the air. In the clip below, Atom helps out an actor who plays his television hero, Super Guy at a personal appearance.

Though there's never been a dedicated DVD release of this Hanna-Barbera show, it can be found on several compilations. There's been talk of a live action version for film. Segments can be found on YouTube like the one above, uploaded by duckstalgia.

Obscurity factor: 2 (has something of a cult following, included in DVD compilations, available onYouTube)
