The Freedom Force is a 1978 animated television series produced by Filmation and aired on CBS as a segment of Tarzan and the Super 7. It showcased a superhero team from various time periods and geographical locations. They were gathered by the heroine Isis from around the world to help fight evil. Isis had previously appeared in the live-action television series, The Secrets of Isis, although the actress who portrayed her, Joanna Cameron, did not reprise the role for the cartoon.
Only five episodes of the series were produced. This show was a spin-off of Space Sentinels (1977), which also featured the character of Hercules. In turn, The Kid Super Power Hour with Shazam! (1980) was a spin-off of this series, as Isis appeared in that show as well.
