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,'.

Wow, who would've thought that with the creative team of Batman:TAS a show this good could be produced? From the pilot episode to further adventures of the Man of Steel, Superman:TAS is another gem of the golden age of superhero cartoons(and that's counting the X-Men and Spider-Man cartoons as well as Iron Man and Fantastic Four). I've always wondered why the same team behind these properties never attempted to make a Wonder Woman animated series? After all, she is the most famous female superhero in the world so why not a shot at the small screen in animated form? Like the Batman series, the character driven stories are great with awesome writing and truly spectacular action scenes that sometimes share the spotlight with other well-known stars of the DC Comics spectrum. The Superman movies were great and all, but the animated series made me more and more infatuated with Superman. Superman: TAS is one of the best animated properties to come out of DC Comics. Bruce Timm and Paul Dini have done wonders for both characters. C'mon guys, bring on Wonder Woman. I would be proud.
