DVD Review:
I'm a well known animation fan, and gems like this one don't come around often. Never before seen on DVD classic animation from the Warner Brothers Studios! Wow, is all I can say to this one. What a joy these were to watch. I found particular enjoyment in viewing the classic Fleischer Superman episode! These discs can be appreciated by adult fans, but its also wonderful to expose children to these rich and skillful pieces of cartoon history. I recommend this one for all ages!
