"It's a bird! It's a plane! It's.... (heck, you know the rest)!"

Bullets just bounce off him. Criminal masterminds can't outfox him. And even the deadly, destructive gizmos dreamed up by mad scientists can't blast him into smithereens.

With powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men, Superman had the super-strength and super-endurance to defeat all of his many determined foes.

This highly-enjoyable, low-budget, action-packed, TV series from the fabulous 1950s is great fun for all ages. This was a show that was very representative of its time in American pop culture.

Containing surprisingly little gunfire (except at Superman) and a significantly toned-down approach to its violence (where Superman often resorted to banging the criminals' heads together), this lighthearted and often whimsical superhero show featured villains who were clearly caricatures of themselves, playing their parts in a very tongue-in-cheek fashion.

As essential viewing for anyone interested in 1950's pop culture and the very beginnings of TV superheroes, The Adventures Of Superman is sure to please one and all with its fast-paced, half-hour episodes that come at you (faster than a speeding bullet) in b&w.
