Some of the best animation of its time, these Superman “shorts” are probably more responsible for entrenching the Man of Steel into our collective consciousness than the comic books and radio show combined. I find that a few get a bit long in the tooth due to the constant push for the buying of War Bonds content, but overall they are still top quality shows. We can also thank these 17 short features for another fan favorite, Batman:the Animated Series. You can find these episodes everywhere, so if you haven’t seen them yet it just look in the cheap video section of whatever store you like to shop in. Or you can simply see if they are streaming 😉
Either way, watch this informative video for some interesting tidbits about the Fleischer Studios productions from the 1940’s.
