"...the entire series gives off as much a "gangster movie" vibe as a comic book one. Mac McEntire, DVD Verdict
Editor's NoteContaining one of the most instantly recognizable intro sequences to a TV show ("Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!"), THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN was the first attempt to bring the comic book character to television screens. This first season originally aired in 1952, and established great cinematic characters such as Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and of course Clark Kent himself. By day Kent attempts to live an anonymous existence as a reporter for the Daily Planet, but when trouble comes calling, he transforms into Superman, the last survivor from the planet Krypton. This release includes every episode from the third and fourth seasons of the show.

Customer Reviews of Adventures of Superman-Seasons 3 and 4
Alots of fun for the family Thanks
Adventures of Superman in Color9/19/2006
The color programs are excellent! It is too bad that there were only 13 episodes shot per season in color. The transfer to DVD was done very well. Although the soundtrack was done in Dolby Digital, it would have been nice for them to have been done using the front two channels instead of just the center channel alone. Although we finally get to see Clark Kent driving the 1953 Nash-Healey in a couple of episodes, which was loaned to the studio by Dick Powell and is still in existence today, it is clear that the Nashes are pretty much gone and replaced by Chrysler Corporation cars. It is finally good to see new backgrounds, scenery and locations used which differ from the black & white shows which repetitiously used the same locations over and over again! If I saw that cave location one more time in the b&w shows, I would have had to do something drastic! Anyway, this is a great set and I can hardly wait to get the season 5 & 6 set!
