Yeah, I'd like to see these (amazing just how much they got Supes to look like Chris Reeve)theBat-Man said:The 1988 cartoon series was great for 80's animation. It was based on John Byrne's Superman revamp. Marv Wolfman was story editor. The show was critically acclaimed but was cancelled due to low ratings after 13 episodes. It was only on Saturday mornings on CBS. Remember this was the era of the Smurfs. It would be fun to see the 1988 Superman series released on DVD.

A friend of mine picked it up bootlegged (sp?) at Wondercon. I tried for years...
IMO, the best character designs for Supes. Th animation quality of STAS was great, but I love the look of the Ruby Spears one.
Does anyone know why it only lasted one season?
you r not wrong.this iss post crisis, Lex is a billionair industirial list. It uses the theme from the superman films. It has a mixture of both social and sci-fi story lines plus each episode had a 5 min segment of CK growing up in smallvile. It was done during superman's aniversery.
IMO, probably the best superman incarnation on the small screen.
