A rather strange final Superman cartoon.
5 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the final Superman cartoon from the Fleischer Brothers. It does seem odd that this extremely patriotic and propaganda-infused cartoon series would end mid-WWII. Perhaps they just weren't very popular. Or, perhaps the animators were needed for government work. Sadly, being the last, it's also among the least of the films in the series. Part of it is because Clark/Superman only utters one line! The film begins with Clark Kent on the phone. His boss insists he cover some boring event and Clark weakly protests with his only line. Suddenly, cars come crashing by--chasing another car and firing at it repeatedly. Clark jumps onto the back of the vehicle giving chase and follows them to their headquarters.

The lady in the other car escapes and soon you see her at police headquarters explaining that she needs help getting to Washington because she has a list of enemy spies in America. On the way, not surprisingly, they are attacked and this spunky lady escapes yet again. However, she is in serious danger so Clark somehow instinctively knows when and where to appear to save the day. Just how DID he know that?! The lack of dialog make this one strange as did one weird piece of dialog. When the lady leaves her car early in the cartoon, she explains to no one nearby that she needs to get to the police with the list. Just who is she talking to?! Overall, this one just seemed odd and a bit rushed compared to the average Superman short of the era.
