The theme song for this series is written by Shirley Walker. Producer Bruce Timm asked Walker to create a theme that instrumentally said "Superman" as he believes that's what makes a good Superman theme (i.e. John Williams theme from Superman (1978) and theme from Max Fleischer's Superman (1941) cartoons).

I was never a big Superman fan growing up. I watched Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, love Christopher Reeve's Superman, and I watched this animated series. The animated series is a personal favorite of mine along with my favorite super hero, Spider-Man. I loved both these series in the 90's. I don't like Batman though. The animated series is back on JETIX. As is Spider-Man. I highly recommend this show. Along with Smallville. Forget Superman Returns! It was an absolute failure! The Spider-Man films are perfect along with Christopher Reeve's Superman movies! But, skip Superman Returns! The voice acting is awesome.
