Movie Reviews

An interesting experience
David P. Carrillo | Ontario, CA USA | 07/31/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Born in the 1980s, I was pleasantly surprised by the animation and overall quality of the production. These cartoons were my first experience watching the original superman series and I was very happy for making the purchase. At only 5 dollars, it is quite the bargain!

The last few episodes (I forget how many exactly) are produced differently and IMO not as good as the others, but still entertaining. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

P.S. Lois Lane is infuriating in these episodes!"
Look! Up on the screen! It's a review!

"I love these cartoons and really appreciate them in their unenhanced original sound and fury!
The Fleischer Superman cartoons are an important part of art, animation and cultural history as well as a window into the social/cultural/technological mix of the 1940s...For example: Examine the robots in 1941's "Mechanical Monsters" with their retro homage as shown by the robots in 2004's "Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow".
The cartoons also offer a window into the WWII era's war fever and the public's heroic perception of the news media as represented by Lois and Perry White.
This DVD should be a part of any grade and high school teacher's bag of tricks as a media drop in to history and art studies.
