Up in the sky.... Look! It?s a bird. It?s a plane. It?s Superman! Outfitted in his trademark blue tights and red cape, this iconic superhero may be the most famous comic book character of all time. He is the last son of Krypton, sent to Earth before his home planet exploded, living under the alias Clark Kent as he fights for truth, justice and the American way. Joined by their love of comics and dreams of breaking into the newspapers, best friends Jerry Siegel, an aspiring writer, and Joe Shuster, an aspiring artist, created Superman in 1933. Although initially rejected by newspapers, Siegel and Shuster finally found their audience in the new medium of comic books. By 1941, Superman was enjoying tremendous success in comics, radio serials and motion pictures. SUPERMAN CARTOONS features ten animated Man of Steel classics from the early 1940s, including the Fleischer Studios productions "The Mechanical Monsters", "The Bulleteers" and "The Arctic Giant".
