Fleischer Studios Classic 'Superman' - all episodes on YT

Postby Charles » Wed Sep 28, 2011 3:04 am

One of the greatest animated serials of all time, "Superman", is now a comprehensive movie on YouTube.

Every episode ever produced in the early 1940s, 1941 and 1942, have been combined into a YouTube movie that anyone on the Internet can watch for free.

Now you can see every episode and be an expert on the series. With incredibly impressive production quality for the time, that holds up every bit in our own day and age. Fleischer's Superman set a standard by which all other action adventure cartoons that followed hold homage to. You can clearly see the artistic influence of the series on shows that came much later, especially WB's Batman and the Superman TV cartoons that ran throughout the 1990s.

Here's the real thing in a comprehensive collection to enjoy. If you can't watch them all at this time, bookmark the YouTube link and you'll have it available at your pleasure.

I noticed that one of them were done in 1943, after the company switched ownership and became Famous Studios. So I'll amend the info contained in my previous post. Also found after a little more research that this YouTube movie doesn't contain all the Superman cartoons the Fleischers produced, but most of them are here.

I marvel at the production quality in this series. From the animation to the design, to the fully orchestrated music, it's simply incredible that this many cartoons were done in two years time, while the studio was also producing feature films.
