Meticulously-following co-creator Joe Shuster's character designs, the cartoons also contributed several elements to the Superman mythos including; changing clothes in a phone booth, Superman actually flying (Up to this point, he had leaped from point to point) and the catch phrase "Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!"
Voices were provided by the dramatic radio Superman / Clark Kent (Bud Collier) and Lois Lane (Joan Alexander) who would also reprise the roles in the first tv Superman cartoons in 1966!
Trivia: Though nominated for Oscars, the Superman shorts lost each time!

It's also the only Fleischer Superman poster we've seen that commissioned new art, rather than use existing comic book or animation art!

Perfect as a gift for an animation aficionado or Superman fan (or someone who's both)!
