I cannot believe I didn't know about this website until today!

These are the cartoons I grew up with. These are the cartoons I hope my nephew watches and marvels at. This is the reason I love Superman (and comic books in general) so much. I mean, just look at the scenery & backdrops and the art in general - Max Fleischer is a GOD!

This episode, in particular, was the first I ever saw. I think I must've been 5 or 6 years old, in Nigeria, with just a few cartoons and other video cassettes (now you know why I can recite the dialog to Star Wars episode IV verbatim) to pass the evenings. To a little boy, the whole "faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, the man of steel ... Superman!" bit was a surefire way to hold my attention! This was also the first time I heard the phrase "This looks like a job for ... Superman!". Ooh, I got a shiver down my spine just typing that out!
