The show was canceled following a lawsuit filed by Warner Brothers (the company that owned the Superman "family" of characters) against the Salkinds who had leased the rights in the early 1970s and made the "Superman"(Christopher Reeves) film series. The Salkinds produced the first 3 films, and sold the rights to "Cannon/Golan Globus Production" who released "Superman IV." WB claimed that they had first shot at making a series (the show was distributed through Viacom). The case was settled and the rights officially reverted to WB and the show has not been rerun in North America since, although a DVD release of the first season did occur in 2006. See more »
I grew up reading Superboy comics and this TV series really delivered. It was a work in progress in it's first season, but it's heart was definitely in the right place. Season 2 was an impressive improvement and seasons 3 & 4 were GREAT! Superboy didn't shy away from using ideas and characters straight from the comic books. It was great to see Bizarro, Mr.Mxyzptlk, Metallo, The Yellow Peri, and Lex Luthor as played by Sherman Howard. The series also featured stories by comic book writers such as the legendary Denny O'Neil and the sensational Carey Bates. I can't wait for the day when the entire Superboy series will finally be made available on DVD. Give us Superboy on DVD!
