Trivia

This short film was actually a pilot for a proposed series. It was created in an effort by the network to salvage Adventures of Superman (1952) after the death of star George Reeves. The characters were all animal parodies of those from the series starring little people in large masks. The series was never picked up and this short was never broadcast. See more »

Mindbogglingly bad....and you wonder WHO thought this was a good idea!!
23 June 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

For years I have thought that the worst television show ever was "The Brady Variety Hour". Well, I have found one much worse...though fortunately the execs in charge of ordering new TV shows turned this one down!! It's "Superpup"...the adventures of a Superman-like dog who solves crimes! And, it's MUCH worse than it sounds!!

"The Adventures of Superman" was a popular 1950s TV show. However, after the death of the leading man, George Reeves, some numb-skull came up with the bright idea of using the same sets and continuing the series....with dogs in almost all the roles (there also is an annoying mouse puppet). So, a bunch of super-creepy dog heads were created and their dead-like expressions is something that is nightmare fodder for children! Add to that super-annoying cartoony voices and you have a recipe for the dry heaves!

If you are insane or like self-torture (like I do), then go to YouTube and type in "Superpup"...and you, too, can witness this monstrosity that offers not one minute of actual entertainment...just pain and awfulness!
