Jungle Drums is another Superman cartoon made during World War II
24 June 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is another in the Fleischer/Famous series of Superman cartoons. In this one, Lois Lane is flying over a jungle with the pilot when the plane crashes into the place with Ms. Lane ending up with the dying man's papers. Unfortunately, the white hooded men that turn out to be Nazis have tortured Lois at the stake in order to make her give up those papers' hiding place. Forturnately, her colleague Clark Kent finds out about that and...well, you probably know what happens next. Meant as a propaganda piece, Jungle Drums get points for providing some very exciting scenes of fire and bombings of enemy submarines and of seeing Adolf Hitler wince at the Americans' triumphant turn at battle. Otherwise, you'd probably be confused at why things happened the way they're depicted in this short...
