Hmmm, on the one hand it was cool that it was done by one person.

On the other, its pretty much a variation of the existing Fleischer Superman short, "The Mechanical Monsters", with a robot design that looks like Gort and some elements that seem borrowed from Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (which itself owed a debt to..."The Mechanical Monsters.)

I think it was more a demonstration of style than content. Yeah, it was basically a remake of the Fleischer cartoon, but the animation was pretty damn good, fun, quirky and fast moving. I think this would appeal to today's animation fans.

It was fun. Animation was tight, in a (presumably intentional) old-fashioned, over-exaggerated way. Not sure I could take it for a whole movie. But it would be interesting to see how this guy polishes things in future installments.

Default The Fleischer Superman Cartoons

The Fleischer Superman Cartoons Arrive On YouTube [Video]

From AICN Sep 19, 2008:
Moriartyís Been Thinking About SUPERMAN...
The hell of it is... Warner Bros. owns the right property. Tom DeHavenís novel is a thing of burnished beauty, smart and richly imagined and profound. It is classic Superman in every way, but it manages to make it all feel real, immediate, brand new. I reviewed it here, but I canít find the review in our archives. But itís theirs. They published it. And the last thing you could call it would be a reimagining.
