Superman Battles The Forces Of Nature

A SUPERMAN Cartoon

After slumbering for 300 years, the volcanic isle of Monokoa erupts in molten fury. The world watches anxiously as scientists race to protect the lovely town at the mountain's foot from imminent destruction. When intrepid reporter Lois Lane finds herself in danger of being immolated, it's time for Superman to get involved. But can even the Man of Steel fight the awakened fury of the VOLCANO?

This was another in the series of excellent cartoons Max Fleischer produced for Paramount Studio. They feature great animation and taut, fast-moving plots. Meant to be shown in movie theaters, they are miles ahead of their Saturday Morning counterparts. Bud Collyer is the voice of Superman; Joan Alexander does the honors for Lois Lane.
