Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Here's the rub, the colours are insanely vibrant and the picture flex and specks are almost non-existent, which when putting on the Warner DVD's is quite evident (and yes, bits and pieces of detail is kind of "Smoothed Over" but where the detail counts, it's there, and the vibrant colours are stunning, not looking over saturated or having any over bleed effects, with skin tones looking normal; I actually found the Blu-ray colours to fit the cartoons more than the Warner DVD's pallet).

But here's the big, "BIG", problem with this set, the sound sync is off (only milliseconds for the first episode, but the next episode, The Mechanical Monsters, part way in when Lois and Clark are talking, the sound is so far off that it sounds like Lois is talking like Clark, as her lips are moving to Clark's spoken line).

I watched 3 episodes from the first disc (on 2 different Blu-ray players to make sure that it wasn't just a player issue) and the second and third episodes (especially the second) started okay with the episode intro and a tad into the episode, but then the sync just goes WAY off (and not just slightly off, but WAY off, people seeming to say other people's lines in the other people's voices, sound effects happening WAY after the sound was made, etc.) and that was only after 3 of the 17 episodes.

It sucks Kryptonite, because if it wasn't for the sound sync issues, I'd actually prefer it to the Warner DVD's (even with the detail issues and the watermark in the lower right of the screen) because of the Blu-ray's vibrant colours, removal of the consistent print debris that plague every frame of the Warner DVD's and attempted sound enhancement which make the Warner DVD's sound flat by comparison.

BOY! These cartoons are GREAT STUFF! I read about them as a child when I saw a 1942 ad for the cartoons and it whetted my appetite for them.
For the most part, they tend to tell the same story evey time with few exceptions, but the visual quality is WONDERFUL and even though the tales are somewhat predictable, they are imaginative and fun to watch.
My favorites are "Terror on the Midway," where Supe comes to the rescue when a wild gorilla wreaks havoc at a circus (check out the "elephant dance" early on in this film). "Underground World" is quite fascinating, as Supe and Lois get lost in an underground kingdom ruled by hawk-men (check out the ending)! "Showdown" has Supe face off against a crime-committing Superman pretender.
Some of these cartoons are not for the politically correct crowd. "Japoteurs" has Supe stop a Japanese crook from sabotaging a US warplane (remember, this was wartime). "Jungle Drums" has Lois burning at the stake while Africans with bones in their noses dance around her. You have to leave your brains at the door and remember the times to enjoy these.
But either case, get some popcorn, bring the kids (and skip the politically incorrect stuff for them), and you'll have a ball from ages 8 to 80.

I can't praise this collection by Bosko Video enough. The picture quality is amazing- before I bought this DVD I actually thought that these cartoons were inherently murky, dark, and fuzzy. It amazed me to find that the original prints were sharp, detailed, and bright. Plus, the DVD menu makes it quick and easy to skip around and find exactly the title that you want. This is a quality production and not some slapped together compilation of public domain material. Plus you get ALL the cartoons from both Fleischer and Famous studios.
I remember back before the mid 60's when there was NO animated super-hero material available. Then a relative told me that she remembered Superman cartoons from WW2. I thought that she must have been kidding me. I simply couldn't believe that if such films existed that they would not be on television. Yet that was the case- no one saw these cartoons for over 30 years. I wish they had been available because they would have been my hands down favorites. Super-hero animation of this high of quality didn't appear again until the '90's. The quality of the artwork is amazing. The colors, shading, and shadows are magnificent. And the overall art deco/ film noir look is pure class.
There is something more about these cartoons. I personally believe that they were some of the best propaganda to come out of the WW2 era (the first two were actually made BEFORE Pearl Harbor.) I mean, a lot of youngsters must have seen these films before going off to war. The Axis was spewing all sorts of propaganda about "supermen." They were claiming that superior beings had a natural right to enslave and rule the world. Well, here was a superior being whose only reason to BE was to help those who needed his help. He defended the weak and helpless. He fought for truth and justice. That must have been a powerful example for young men who were about to go off and do the very same thing.....
