Animated World of DC Comics: Superman meets the Iron Eater (1966)

Superman (Bud Collyer, To Tell The Truth) encounters a shape-changing alien who's crash-landed on Earth with a major appetite for iron & steel. Here's "The Iron Eater":

The creature's general look recalls the Filmation staff's earlier work on humor cartoons such as Popeye and Bozo The Clown before striking out on their own. The contrast really doesn't work here as the creature isn't as terrifying a menace as he's made out to be. One of the weaker entries of the 1st season.

Rating: C.
