Despite the deceptive title, there were really only five members of this superhero band: Elevator Man, Granite Man, Magnet Man, Super Scuba and Captain Zammo. The mysterious sixth member, Super Stretch, was dropped before the show went to air, and Super Five just wasn't as catchy.

The five stars all worked for Super Services Inc., which rented out their heroism at a reasonable price. Each member of the group starred in his own adventure, showcasing his respective abilities in spectacularly oddball and comic fashion.

The Super Six also contained a pair of supporting segments. The first starred Super Bwoing, a character who did little to earn the title “super,” spending most of his time playing guitar. The second segment featured the Brothers Matzoriley, a nutty pair of Irish-Jewish siblings.

The wacky hijinks of The Super Six were similar to Ralph Bakshi's concurrent superhero cartoon, The Mighty Heroes, but the kryptonite that finally did these heroes in was of the flying rodent variety, as CBS' Mighty Mouse Playhouse proved too powerful for our super sixsome to overcome. The show ran for three seasons, but the last two were composed strictly of reruns.
