With Man of Steel coming out this week, it just makes sense to highlight something with Superman. And where better than the Max Fleischer Superman cartoons? These are bona fide classics that feature some of the best Superman bits to ever grace the big screen.
The first of these cartoons was simply titled Superman, though it’s also known as The Mad Scientist. The nine Fleischer Studios shorts were originally released between September 26th, 1941 and August 26th, 1942. Eight additional cartoons (with more old-timey racism) were released by Famous Studios from September 18th, 1942 and July 30th, 1943.
After the cut is a full list of the other Fleischer Studios and Famous Studios Superman shorts with links to them on the YouTube.
