Superman vs the Hawkmen
15 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I love the Fleischer Superman cartoons. The animation is smooth and fluid with vivid colors. The distinct art-deco style, vintage science fiction imagery, and use of noirish shadows gave them a look unlike any other cartoons. The music and voicework is superb. They're fun, accessible, enduring animation classics. While this is a cartoon from Fleischer Studios' successor, Famous Studios, it still tries to maintain the Fleischer style.

The sixteenth of the Paramount Superman series. Dr. Henderson asks the Daily Planet to finance an expedition to explore a series of caves his father had disappeared in. Perry White agrees and sends Lois & Clark along to report on the findings of the expedition. Dr. Henderson and Lois head into the underground caverns first, with Clark to follow along later. When the two are captured and taken to an underground city of Hawkmen, it's up to Superman to save them before they are turned into golden statues like Henderson's father decades before.

A truly great cartoon and one of the best of the series. The underground caverns are beautifully animated, the Hawkmen are imaginative villains, and the action is super (pardon the pun). Love the ending!
