Krantz Films, Inc. (KFI) was a production company headed by Steve Krantz. From 1966 to 1974, it produced animated cartoon shows such as The Marvel Superheroes, Spider-Man,[1] Rocket Robin Hood,[2] The Wonderful Stories of Professor Kitzel, and Max, the 2000-Year-Old Mouse.

It also produced two live-action television shows in Canada: The Weaker(?) Sex in 1968[3] and Strange Paradise in 1969.[2] During production of the latter, the company was sold to cable system operator Vikoa, which later wound down the operation.[4]
