Animated World of DC Comics: Superman vs. Destruction, Inc. (1942)

Long before this Superman short hit theatres, the Fleischer brothers had parted company with Paramount Pictures in a dispute. Shortly thereafter, Famous Studios was formed to continue the various animated shorts series (Superman, Popeye, etc.).

"Destruction, Inc." was actually Paramount's Christmas present to fans of the Man of Steel, as the film was released on Christmas Day, 1942. How cool was that?

While the voices are uncredited, it should be noted that Louis, the analogue for Jimmy Olsen in this series, is voiced by Popeye himself, Jack Mercer.

Rating: A.
