Dear Captive Audience,
Here's the real story (and it's not really that interesting):
Charles and Drew were in a band called Rhinoplasty a few years ago.
The bass player and singer, Greg Tymoshenko, wanted to call that band the
Super Friends, but they vetoed it as being too cheesy (though they did
like it better than his original suggestion - The Champions). A couple of
years down the road, I guess they warmed up to The Super Friendz handle
and the rest is history. I don't really know if the cartoon had much to
do with it, I think it was just the "pathetic losers banded together"
angle that appealed to the band.
By the way, if you have access to a community radio station, check out
the Superfriendz' Karate Man cd-single. It has a great Rhinoplasty song
on it. Greg went on to be 1/3 of the late, great Leather Uppers.
