When It Was Cool Pop Culture Podcast

There were two Superman movie serials produced, one in 1948 and another in 1950. This week we look at the first where Superman faces an original masked crime lord called The Spider Lady. The serial is actually pretty decent aside from the low budget and animated flight sequences. Most of the actors are fine and while Superman might be a little too much on the silly side, he was still considerably better than the much-maligned Batman actors from the same era.

Today we take a look back at the first of the famous Fleischer film animated shorts from 1941 - Superman: Mad Scientist. These animated films were known for being very advanced for their time and still hold up quite well today. With an epic cinematic score, tremendous voice acting, and exciting plots, it's no wonder the Fleischer Films still are revered today.
