Superman's villains consist mostly of ordinary criminals. The audience never meets Lex Luthor or any other of Superman's nemeses. See more »
Many scenes in the color seasons show Clark Kent leaving an office in the Daily Planet building to transform into Superman. When leaving, Kent often wears or grabs his hat, but whenever he approaches the storeroom to change costume, he doesn't have the hat with him. See more »
Some episodes from the first and second seasons were censored for network broadcast. These edited versions were carried over to the early 16mm television syndication prints. The cut footage was restored in the 1960s. See more »
I remember watching several episodes of The Adventures of Superman when the BBC screened some of them during the summer school holidays around 1987/88. An episode of this usually followed Gentle Ben and Silas (these were on around two or three times a week) but Superman was on, if I remember right, everyday. So a good 90 minutes of entertainment some mornings.
Superman/Clarke Kent was played by George Reeves who is certainly no relation to the late Christopher Reeve who starred in the four Superman movies which some people seem to think so (the surnames are different). Louis Lane was played by Phyllis Coates and later Noel Neill.
We usually had a different story each episode although some episodes were two parters.
It would be nice to see some episodes of The adventures of Superman again. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
