Storyline

In the eyes of most Superman fans, this series consisted of four seasons. Season 1 (1966-1967) was a 30 minute show featuring two Superman segments sandwiched around one Superboy story. Season two made up the first half of The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure (1967) and season 3 filled the last half of The Batman/Superman Hour (1968). Both seasons 2 and 3 featured the same format of two Superman and one Superboy segments, and consisted of both new material and reruns from previous seasons. Season 4 (1969-1970) saw the series return once more to a stand-alone, 30-minute show; and consisted of only previously aired episodes. Written by Neal Graham <neal62@suddenlink.net>

Great cartoon!
17 August 2005 | by (Angel City) – See all my reviews

Listen to Stu from Australia! Stu is absolutely right! This was fun! I loved these cartoons! I loved the Superboy cartoons that were shown along with the New Adventures of Superman too. The Aquaman cartoons featured along with Superman also rocked! Aquaman was at his best and kicked serious butt in those cartoons. It was all extremely exciting stuff and a blast to watch when I was a kid. The voice artists were superb and there was great music too. The pacing of the adventures was fast and thrilling. There was never a dull moment. I'd love to see these again. I'd buy them immediately if they were on DVD. Put 'em out on DVD somebody!
