Known for its downright incredible intro theme tune (with lyrics credited to Stan Lee), Defenders of the Earth ran for just one season from 1986, but one with 65 (!) episodes in total.

Set in the year 2015, it followed an Avengers-style teamup of comic characters Flash Gordon, The Phantom, Mandrake the Magician and Mandrake’s assistant Lothar. Their main enemy was the evil Ming the Merciless. He was merciless, after all.
