TV Shows - Adventures of Superman, The

Adventures of Superman is an American television series based on comic book characters and concepts created in 1938 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The show is the first television series to feature Superman and began filming in 1951 in California. Sponsored by cereal manufacturer Kellogg's, the syndicated show's first, and last, air dates are disputed but generally accepted as September 19, 1952 and April 28, 1958. The show's first two seasons (episodes 1-52, 26 titles per season) were filmed in black-and-white; seasons three through six (episodes 53-104, 13 titles per season) were filmed in color but originally telecast monochromatically both on the ABC network and in first-run syndication. Television viewers would not see Superman in color until the series was syndicated to local stations in 1965.

1 George Reeves is, was, and always will be THE best and only Superman. Nowadays, Warner Brothers is ashamed of the Superman name, costume, and ideal. May as well not call them "Supermen," though, since subsequent "Men of Steel" have displayed far less than the pinnacle of moral behavior on-screen. They either brainwash their supposed loved ones, spy on them with their x-ray vision, or contribute to widescale death and destruction through careless action then murder their adversaries in the name of heroism. No thanks. George was a hero on and off the screen, supporting his co-stars to the point of putting his job on the line to ensure they had adequate screen-time (or in the case of Robert Shane, keep him from being blackballed), and always willing to lend a hand to any member of the cast and crew. The nature of George's death doesn't diminish his contributions in life one bit. It is sad, however, that even in the light of Toni Mannix's confession, the suicide lie persists. She ADMITTED she had her mobster husband kill George out of jealousy over his impending married to Lenore Lemmon. Though they got away with murder because they controlled the cops, Toni lamented her going to hell over it afterward, as well she should. I think it's about time that the man who embodied truth and justice be given a little of it himself. -- Submitted By: (SimonWilliams) on November 27, 2014, 1:03 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I still say the George Reeves version was easily the best of ALL the TV interpretations of the character. Too bad that that legacy [and his entire previous life] has been overshadowed by the still questionable circumstances re his death! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 22, 2011, 5:33 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I must say that for it's time, it really wasn't a bad show. It can fall a tad on the cornball side but it's still pretty watchable in my opinion. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 23, 2010, 11:53 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 "Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!" "Look! Up in the sky!" "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!" "It's Superman!" And certainly for its day, Superman was a fantastic series, with a remarkable cast of actors. Did you know that both Phyllis Coates and Noel Neill, who each played Lois Lane during the series are still around? Perhaps the only mistake was selecting such a recognizable building to represent "The Daily Planet" facade: Los Angeles City Hall! And budgetary restrictions meant that the only people inside that massive building were Clark Kent, Jimmy Olsen, Lois and Perry White. But if you can overlook those elements, you'll see some great work from George Reeves, a very likable Man of Steel as well as his ne'er do well cub photographer Jack Larson as Jimmy (and of course he's also still around)! Plus some really good stories, ideal for both kids and their parents to enjoy. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 9:16 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Great show for kids. I loved it, back in the 60's! -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on March 12, 2010, 5:36 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
