|Make them exciting and visually bold, make them in brilliantly saturated Technicolor: This is a job for Superman! From their signature bullet-paced prologues to their muscular style to their stories steeped in heroics and wartime topicality, these 17 animated theatrical shorts produced by Max Fleischer (with the first nine directed by his brother Dave) set the tone for future screen versions of the Man of Steel's exploits, inspired animators for decades to come and, best of all, continue to pack a thrilling punch for fans. Superman's adventures in comic books were scarcely three years old when the Academy Award-nominated debut cartoon, Superman, burst onto the screen with its breakthrough look and vitality. The excitement still soars.|
Includes the theatrical shorts Superman (Mad Scientist), The Mechanical Monsters, Billion Dollar Limited, Arctic Giant, The Bulleteers, The Magnetic Telescope, Electric Earthquake, Volcano, Terror on the Midway, The Japoteurs, Showdown, The Eleventh Hour, Destruction Inc., The Mummy Strikes, Jungle Drums, Underground World, and Secret Agent!
Editor's NoteHe's faster than a speeding bullet...and elegantly captured in vintage animated theatrical shorts from the Max Fleischer studios.
