Superman remembers the "Mane!" (also the Hoofs, the Tail, etc.)
30 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THE APPEAL OF stories about kids and their dogs has always been a natural subject for presentation in any and all genres, media or era. We all recall film and TV featuring names so familiar as: Lassie, Rinty (Rin Tin Tin), Tramp, Lady, Benji, Digby, Marley and Yukon King. As the SUPERMAN Series had already exploited the canine connection ('Corkie' in The Dog Who Loved Superman, season 2), the next choice would be the equine species.

FOLLOWING IN THE footsteps that were established by such 4 legged & hoofed stars as BLACK BEAUTY, FURY and SNOWFIRE, the Superman TV production company gave us JOEY, a race horse who had been the property of a young girl. The horse was purchased by the Daily Planet and eventually was returned to the girl. The girl, Alice (Jenine Perreau) was an inseparable companion and inspiration to Joey. The horse had even fallen ill for being separated from Alice. (Hay Fever?)

THE INVOLVEMENT OF thugs involved in the tampering with the honest conduct of "the Sport of Kings" brought in the intervention of the Man of Steel; who assured that this very enjoyable, sentimental installment of the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN to a happy ending.

THIS STORY ALSO involved all of the regular cast members (except Inspector Henderson) in important roles. Perry White, in particular, was well showcased. He was able to act as philanthropist of the first order in his purchase of Joey and the eventual return of the horse to Alice.

AN INTERESTING sort of sidebar comes in the stock footage of the race track and the horses. The presence of Palm Trees and the Sombreros worn by the grooms at track-side suggested that "Metropolis" was being portrayed by the fair city of Tiajuana.
