      Comments about Max Fleischer's Superman (DVD):

      THIS IS THE VERSION TO GET.
      Because of copy-write issues, these amazing shorts have been released by many companies. Some are very sketchy. This is as official as you can get from the best sources available. The extras are the typical talking heads documentaries, but the shorts are the thing. Some of the best superhero animation committed to film to this day (Amazing that the character was only a few years old when these were made). This series is the major inspiration for the stellar 90's Batman:The Animated Series and it shows. Superman went from leaping in the comics to FLYING because of these shorts. This collection should be in the library of every fan of Superman, animation, and comic books. It is a definitive work. A masterpiece of the art form.

        How can they call this "remastered" when it's full of dust spots? Very dirty, scratchy, awful. These cartoons should be rich and gorgeous, not something projected on a sheet in the back yard.

            It's a great look back at Superman's first screen appearance and it still entertains. The plots are simple (they are only seven minute shorts) but it offers a good look at the era when Superman was born. And the visuals are very engaging for animation, a definite noir feel.

                    Comments about Max Fleischer's Superman (DVD):

                    I like this release of the MAX FLEISCHER SUPERMAN CARTOONS. I purchased it as an upgrade and replacement for the same collection of cartoons previously issued on DVD in 1998 by IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT under the title of 'THE SUPERMAN CARTOONS OF MAX & DAVE FLEISCHER' (ID4388BRDVD).

                    This new release of the cartoons is clearly superior to the just mentioned 1998 release of these classic films. The clarity of the digital transfer from the original masters plus the vividness of the restored TECHNICOLOR images can make for a truly remarkable home video viewing experience when watched in simulated 1080p high definition on my 46 inch SHARP AQUOS digital LCD TV while utilizing my DENON UNIVERSAL UPSCALING DVD player as an example.

                    However, because this new digital tranfer appears to be so faithful to the original vault elements of these catoons, the flaws in those elements... such as scratches and nitrate decomposition are extremely noticible when viewed in simulated high definition. When WARNER HOME VIDEO does make available these cartoons in enhanced high definition on BLU-RAY disc, hopefully these technical flaws and considerations will have been corrected.

                    (In this vein, I would hope that WARNER HOME VIDEO would apply the same standards of excellence displayed and utilized by WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEO on their prestigious BLU-RAY disc releases of 'SLEEPING BEAUTY', 'PINOCCHIO', 'SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS',and of course their upcoming BLU-RAY disc releases of 'DUMBO' and 'FANTASIA' for 2010.)

                    I also want to mention that I own the three volumes of MAX FLEISCHER'S 'POPEYE THE SAILOR' in the "Authorized Edition-From The Original Masters" series released by WARNER HOME VIDEO. Again, though I too like these collections of those cartoons very much , I would certainly welcome and encourage WARNER HOME VIDEO to also make them available in pristine condition... completely digitally restored on BLU-RAY disc!

                    It seems to me the time is ripe for the animated masterpieces from the MAX FLEISCHER STUDIOS to be rediscoved in a really big way! This would also include the two full-length features 'GULLIVER'S TRAVELS' and 'MR. BUG GOES TO TOWN', plus all of the BETTY BOOP cartoon shorts completely restored for release on BLU-Ray disc too!

                    In any case, I reiterate that MAX FLEISCHER'S SUPERMAN is a most worthy candidate for complete digital restoration in high definition for
                    BLU-RAY disc release. It has the potential to be one of WARNER HOME VIDEO'S biggest sellers in their catalogue for a very long time to come indeed!

                    Thank you for your time. I hope the decision makers at WARNER HOME VIDEO have found these comments helpful.

                      Been dreaming for years for a DVD of these cartoons that looked so good. But why use the wrong intros on these cartoons when many previous releases got them correct? Hopefully there will be replacement discs that correct these errors. I'll wait and see before purchasing it.
