"This Amazing Stranger From The Planet Krypton"
17 June 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A SUPERMAN Cartoon.

While exploring THE UNDERGROUND WORLD of the Henderson Caves, intrepid girl reporter Lois Lane & her companion are captured by a weird society of flying falcon men. Now, with Lois about to be dipped into boiling lava, this has become a job for Superman...

This was another in the series of excellent cartoons initially created by Max Fleischer 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.
