ProductionEdit

Fantabulous Inc. was Sergio Spina's directorial debut.[1] His next film was his second and last film L'asino 'doro.[3]

ReleaseEdit

On the film's release, distributors changed the original Italian title Fantasbulous and replaced it with the title La donna, il sesso e il superuomo (lit. Woman, Sex and the Superman).[3] The film was released in Italy in 1968.[1]

ReceptionEdit

In a contemporary review in Variety, Mosk. proclaimed that the creators of the film "may have imagined they were making a satirical, progressive pic. But it exploits sex, political notations, and comic strip origins without humor, insight or point to make this just a flaccid programmer that might be used in action or grind spots abroad on its unregenerate bad taste."[4]
