History: (Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends cartoon episode - "7 Little Superheroes" (fb) - BTS) - At one point, Doctor Strange crossed paths with the Chameleon and foiled the criminal's schemes. He did this enough to earn the villain's ire.
(Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends cartoon
episode - "7 Little Superheroes") - Doctor Strange, along with Captain
America and Shanna the Jungle Queen, were invited by an unidentified
host to Wolf Island Manor and upon arrival, they waited for over an hour
with no sign of their host. Strange greeted the Spider-Friends as they
also arrived at the mansion. When the Chameleon announced his intention
to destroy them over a set of speakers, Strange suggested the
Chameleon's voice could have been a recording and that he might actually
be among the assembled heroes. When the group split up to search the
Island, Strange went with Firestar. They arrived at the swamp after
Spider-Man (actually the Chameleon in disguise) left Captain America
being swallowed by quicksand. Doctor Strange then flew off with Firestar
and Iceman in pursuit of the criminal.
Arriving back at the mansion, the trio found the real
Spider-Man crawling out of the chimney. When Ms. Lion licked his hand,
the group figured he was the real item. Strange soon picked
up a telepathic distress from Shanna and heading to the mountains, they
found who they thought was Shanna but it was the disguised Chameleon.
When Firestar chased the villain into a nearby cave, Strange, Iceman and
Spider-Man (along with Ms. Lion) followed behind, unaware that the
Chameleon had changed his disguise to Firestar's image. When they heard
the Chameleon's voice, Strange deduced Firestar was the next target and
rushed down a tunnel to help her. When Firestar was captured, the
Chameleon appeared as Firestar. A recording of the Chameleon's voice
subsequently played throughout the cave, surprising Strange as a
appeared. Distracted when the real Shanna arrived, Strange stood still
as the demon blasted him with a red tractor beam and dragged him into
After that, Strange
was placed in a cage alongside Captain America and Shanna. When Namor,
who had also been inviting to Wolf Island Manor and captured earlier,
smashed the control panel after being freed by Spider-Man, Strange's
amulet opened and allowed him to blast the cage apart.
Spider-Man eventually captured the Chameleon and Strange flew away from
the mansion, rescuing Shanna as well by encasing Shanna in a force
bubble and carrying her off before the Manor exploded. Following the
Manor's destruction, Strange flew away with the other heroes.
(Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends cartoon episode - "Spider-Man Unmasked" - BTS) - Dr. Strange became sufficiently well known to the public for his likeness to be displayed on a mannequin in Stan's Costume Shop.
(Doctor Strange and the Mystery Kids) - Doctor Strange teamed up with the Mystery Kids for a number of adventures (see comments).

According to a few online sources, Doctor Strange was voiced by William Woodson.
His stats are from his 616 counterpart.
Since the Hulk, Namor and Valkyrie (at least as a costume) exist, who's the say the Defenders aren’t lurking around?
In 2013, while liquidating memorabilia from
his long career in comics and television, writer Martin Pasko put up for
auction "Doctor Strange and the Mystery Kids: A Preliminary Development
for an Animated Saturday Morning Television Series." As he explained in
the auction details:
"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."
This proposed series was apparently going to be a spin-off from Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, following Doctor Strange's appearance in "7 Little Superheroes." Per the cover of the document, the first draft was completed on 19th October 1981.
