Trivia

The Superman design on this show is based on his familiar, well-known, classic design with short hair. At the time the series was in development, Superman's design was slightly revamped in the comics, giving him longer hair, and in 1997 he was given an extreme overhaul with new electric powers and a completely new costume, and split in two beings as Blue and Red Superman. With the movie project going into development hell and the popularity of this series, Superman returned to his classic design in 1998. See more »

User Reviews

Fine television flight of the Man of Steel
22 December 1998 | by Chiron1987See all my reviews

Superman: The Animated Series shows once again that lightning can strike twice. Great animation, stories, and voice-over performances prove that Superman can survive 60 years and still find audiences in this sarcastic television era.
