It's a wonder we didn't win the war sooner!
19 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Eleventh Hour" is a very strange Superman cartoon from the Fleischer Brothers. It even begins strangely--with an odd variation from the usual 'Faster than a speeding bullet' introduction. What also is strange is that Lois and Clark are correspondents in Japan DURING the war! This is a nutty premise--especially because Clark/Superman spends his nights destroying the Japanese military machine. In fact, it makes you wonder why it took so long to end the war! But the story is so illogical that you just need to sit back and accept it for what it is--mindless WWII era propaganda. Enjoyable and well animated but also pretty silly. Not surprisingly, you don't see this one of TV any more though if you are curious, you can download it for free at
