Did You Know?


in the scene in the Kent household, when Mxysptlx turns the Kents act like chickens, he comments to Clark "chickens are always funny, though personally, I prefer ducks," perhaps a reference to the voice artist Gilbert Godfried's tenure as the voice for the Aflac duck. See more »


Mr. Mxyzptlk: [storming into his home] Nuts! Nuts! Nuts!
Gsptlsnz: He beat you again, huh?
Mr. Mxyzptlk: [snarls] Don't you start with me, Gsptlnz!

OMG! this is soooooo funny! Especially Gilbert Godfried! It is soooo funny how Superman always tricks Mxyzptlk! Being an avid fan of the Superman comics from the 30's to oh, say, 70's, I was delighted to see that Mxyzptlk had gone back to the original way he was when he first appeared! you can't beat the funny little man in the purple top hat. And the whole thing with MGurk(the statue) really happened in the 40's when Mxyzptlk first showed up. I love how the creators of Superman: the animated series decided to incorporate and modernize all of the stuff from the old comics and werren't majorly influenced by the movie(Marlon Brando in a glowing suit saying, "my thon"? it makes me cringe. and what was up with that space ship? and all the crystals? might I mention that the whole idea of the phantom zone being a spinning diamond is completely ridiculous, and that they should have used the good ol fashioned ray) and new comics, although apparently the ice scene in the begginning of the premiere was influenced by the krystal krypton. The old stuff is really the best. Anyway, as I said, the whole episode is hilarious! I could watch it over.. and over... and over.. it's that good!!! Mxy's girl is also funny in her, i-don't-really-see-what-the-fuss-is-about way. although it's weird that a midget gets a hot girl. but hey, its the fifth dimension!
