Animated World of DC Comics: Supergirl buckles up (1984)

Now, here's an ad I've never seen. Ever.

If you thought Supergirl made her television debut on Justice League Unlimited, you'd be mistaken. In truth, the Maid of Might appeared in a commercial/public service announcement for the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) in 1984. I find it very hard to believe that this never aired during Saturday morning programming on the networks at the time.

Holy Cow!

That was bad! Why is Supergirl hanging out with storybook characters anyway?

I don't know who did the animation---certainly wasn't Hanna-Barbera---but now I think I understand why this didn't get a wide release.

To answer your question, Magicdog, I don't know. The only thing I can figure is that these were actually teens in costumes going to a party.
