The Hawks on Superfriends

Thanks to rob! for this gem of a screencap, from one of the "Lost Episodes" of Superfriends.  

Hawkman looks great, right in line with this Super Powers toy.  But what in the high holy heck is going on with Shayera's costume?  Even if you didn't have the right color reference for the character, why would you go so left field from the colors of her partner whom she shares a superhero name with?!  Did they think it was like Batman and Robin, where the colors are so wildly different.  Furthermore, it's not even a good look; if the color scheme was better, at least it would be tolerable.

Hawkman and Hawkgirl are two of my favorite DC Comics characters. Thanks for posting this! I remember their appearances on Superfriends well! I am going to be sure to also share this post on my blog, too. Awesome stuff.
