The first 26 episodes were filmed in 1951, but did not appear on television until 1952, when Kellogg's Cereals agreed to sponsor the show. See more »
In the opening sequence at the beginning of all episodes, the revolver that is shown (as the narrator says, "Faster than a speeding bullet.") is obviously loaded with blanks. If there were real bullets in the gun, the lead bullet noses would be clearly visible sticking out in the cylinder. But there are none showing--just dark cylinder chambers. This can be most easily seen if one records the episode and then slows it down or freezes it just as the gun is pointing toward the viewer. See more »

George Reeves in my heart will always be the First and True SUPERMAN and I am so happy they are FINALLY putting this Great series on DVD! I Only hope they do It Justice ( The American way) and do not cut corners and let us finally see this series UN CUT so those who grew up watching and loving every episode will again be able to relive their childhood in all its splendor! George Reeves as Superman portrayed it not campy as Batman would later emerge doing, but with a message and values that were good and moral and he made you believe there WAS a Superman! When I was about 5 years old, I was hit by a car and bedridden for several months, my mom would tell me everyday sitting on my bed what happened on Superman and at that age gave me the strength to get better and stronger sooner so I could watch the show myself. I will always treasure these episodes though in its later years got to be a bit corny they still me me feel so good inside and now that I am in my fifty's, I can enjoy this series even better on a BIGGER TV and better sound system! Pure Heaven.
Long Live the Adventures of Superman and may all 104 episodes be released soon! ZDFORME
