ABC dropped the Superfriends from the 1983-1984 season as it had begun airing in weekday syndication.  New episodes (8 half hours - 24 shorts) for this season had already been produced.  These “lost episodes” aired in Australia and one episode premiered on ABC when it returned in the Fall of 1984.  The additional seven episodes finally aired in the US in 1995 as part of the newly edited Superman/Batman Adventures on USA Network.
