Fleischer Studio's Superman, made just a few short years after Superman's inception, was key to solidifying this now-iconic character's place in the American consciousness.
To this day, it retains its reputation as a classic series thanks to its high production values and historical significance not only as the first comic-to-film adaptation, but also as a vehicle for American propaganda during World War II, with occasional war-time racism to boot.
It raised the bar for theatrical shorts with its fluid animation and action-packed storylines, inspiring many in the animation and film industries.
Toonami Digital Arsenal proudly presents the complete Fleischer/Famous Studios Superman Film Series - with a level of clarity and detail that hasn't been seen in 70 years.
