And now, another exciting episode in the
Adventures of Superman...

Sunday August 5, 1951: While the cast and crew have the day off…

The "Adventures of Superman" was a pioneer in TV broadcasting. When the cast and crew began, they were not at all sure how they were going to accomplish their lofty goals. Always keeping their budget in mind, they innovated as they went along. Superman in flight is animated in "Superman and the Mole-Men." Then, "The Haunted Lighthouse," perhaps the first episode to be completely assembled, shows their first attempt to depict human flight. And here, in this clip from "The Human Bomb," Superman performs an in-flight rescue. There are those who criticize the production crew for these "flaws" of the past. Instead, they should be applauded. For had Maxwell and all not been willing to experiment and forge ahead... to put those "flawed" images out there... we'd have nothing. And what a shame that would be.
