Silver Surfer: Animated is an American animated superhero TV series based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, as well as the 1999 animated series.


Norrin Radd lives on the peaceful world of Zenn-La and is engaged to a woman named Shalla-Bal. One day, however, his peaceful and happy life is shattered when Galactus, the Planet Eater, arrives. Desperate to save his planet, Norrin Radd approaches Galactus and offers his eternal service as his herald, which involves locating new worlds for Galactus to consume, in return for the sparing of his planet.

Galactus then bestows upon him the Power Cosmic and transforms him into the Silver Surfer.

The series follows the Surfer as he debates his destiny, while Galactus teaches him about the universe, and his encounters with a number of villains, the worst of which is Thanos, who seeks to destroy the universe.

Early in the series, the Surfer betrays Galactus by hiding a planet bearing life from him. As retaliation, Galactus teleports Zenn-La to an unknown part of the galaxy. The Surfer then vows to find Zenn-La, while also being careful not to cross Galactus again.
