The Atom was one of several DC Comics based superhero segments that formed part of the 60-minute series, The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure. Three, 7-minute stories featured The Atom.
Atomic physicist Ray Palmer had the power to shrink from normal to microscopic size, or anywhere in between. Reduced in stature but packing a full-sized punch, he used these powers to fight evil in his dual identity as The Atom. Being a member of Ivy University’s science faculty meant that Ray was usually in the presence of fellow professors when danger struck, which burdened him with the additional task of keeping his alter ego secret. But no task was too big for the tiny Atom, who overcame his opponents — and the suspicions of his colleagues — with equal accomplishment.
In addition to his own segment, The Atom participated with other superheroes in the show’s team-based segment, Justice League of America. Although his initial foray into the animated landscape was short lived, The Atom later joined Hanna-Barbera’s version of the JLA as a member of The All-New Super Friends Hour and The Super Friends Hour.
