Doctor Strange and the Mystery Kids was a planned but ultimately unproduced series.

Background

In 1981, Stan Lee and Martin Pasko wrote a script for Doctor Strange and the Mystery Kids. However, according to Martin Pasko, NBC passed on the project.

About Doctor Strange and the Mystery Kids not being picked up for series, Martin Pasko said "In 1981, in the first year of the new Marvel Productions, I worked with Stan Lee to develop an animated series based on DR. STRANGE for NBC and wrote what is called a preliminary development, describing the series format and the cast of characters. This is that script. (NBC ultimately rejected the series because they felt the mystical elements -- particularly villains like Dormammu -- would be misunderstood by parents as "Satanic," and Marvel was unwilling to "water down" the concept further.)"[1]

Doctor Strange and the Mystery Kids was presumedly going to be a spin-off of Doctor Strange's appearance on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends
