Originally produce Bruce Timm was going to style this series after Max Fleisher's Superman (1941). The reason why they didn't make it Fleischer-esque is that Timm didn't want anybody to literally put it side-by-side with the old Fleischer shorts and say, 'They're just doing a third-rate knockoff of the Fleischers,'.

This series was, and still is amazing. The most surprising thing about this show is its own inventive and original take on the Superman mythos. I think that even the most die-hard comic book fan who has never seen this show would be astounded about the detail the show goes into. Of particular interest and excitement is the introduction of Mr. Mxyzptlk in "MXYZPIXILATED" (released on DVD in Volume 2), Darkseid in "TOOLS OF THE TRADE" (Volume 1) and the Joker (usually a Batman villain) to the series in "WORLD'S FINEST" (Volume 2). This series still, even though it has long since been cancelled off the air (except for syndication), proves to be a great homage to the Superman universe, and to comic books in general. It is an excellent example of outstanding ideas, insight, animation, action, a bit of romance, and suspense.
