This is precisely the reason I avoid caves!!
12 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Underground World" is one of the weirdest, if not the weirdest installments of the Fleischer Brothers' Superman series. It begins with a guy getting the Daily Planet to finance an expedition into some caves that his father discovered and you assume he is returning to try to find the guy. He takes along Clark and Lois and soon things go totally insane--Lois and the Professor are set upon by hawkmen inside the caves! They have heads just like hawks and wings but also humanoid bodies!! Eventually Superman springs into action--saving the pair and sealing up the caves for good.

While the action isn't bad on this one, the whole hawkmen angle is awfully silly. Because of this, it's definitely one of the lesser episodes in the series and one you just might want to skip. If you still want to see it, you can download this and other Superman cartoons for free at archive.org.
