Synopsis: Superman and a cute blonde spy do their thing.

Comments: The last Superman cartoon (from Famous, at least). Lightning and surf he may be stronger than, but not production costs and a shifting production house. Clark goes into a building with Drugs in huge letters 2X on it. Structural blonde hair. Fat Hitler? In Metropolis? There's more animation in this than in most of the other Superman cartoons; possibly more than in all the other '43 Superman cartoons combined. Bunch of people being shot. Less impressive backgrounds and designs tho. Car crash is nicely animated. Nice gams on the spy, too. Salute and a flag, and the series is done. Simplified looks, but they can actually show people doing things a bunch of the time. Superman is barely in the cartoon. And he looks all gumpy and weird when he does show. May be in this more than in some other cartoons tho.
