295 | Paramount Superman Cartoons

Michael, Rob, and Pax are going to kill time between Fast and Furious episodes by watching some old superhero stuff.

The first nine were produced by Fleischer Studios and their fingerprints are also all over the eight that followed by a renamed studio under different leadership. Because of that, all seventeen are usually referred to as the Fleischer Superman cartoons and we talk about the whole set: what worked, what didn't, and what went on to inspire not just future cartoons, but even the comics themselves.
