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

I was about 4 years old when I first saw the New Adventures of Superman I loved it then and I miss it today. I Feel there was a lot to like about the cartoon: The music, The voices(The mild voice of Clark Kent and the Masculine strong voice of Superman -They don't do that anymore), the narration, and I love the mostly sci-fi plots and lastly I loved the animation. I also felt this superman was the most powerful superman, taking missile shots to chest without being phased by them at all, Busting thru stone walls, flying at the speed of light, Moving the earth,and the only thing that could stop him was kryptonite- He was indestructible. I also loved the other Filmation Superhero's like Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkman, as well as Superboy and Aquaman. These were and still are my Favorite Superhero cartoons. I have not been impressed with any of the other Superman cartoons that came after the filmation version. The Superfriends version of superman in my opinion was a much wussier less powerful superman, He was a very wimpy superman in my opinion. The current version of Superman I don't care for in part because I don't like the look of the animation mostly ,and I really don't like anything else about it either. I would just like to see the Good old 1966 New Adventures of Superman cartoon Or the later Batman Superman Hour on DVD. I think that show was a classic. They can't seem to make good cartoons like that anymore. If it was in DVD I would buy in a Flash.
