    This is a cool little short by Robb Pratt...be sure to watch the whole thing. Superman is voiced by John Newton from the Superboy TV show.

    That WAS pretty cool. Also nice seeing some hand drawn animation!

    Really nicely done, and great fun as well. Here's hoping he can follow up with Part 2 :techman:

    I love the fact that the telephone booth looked like the TARDIS

    EXCELLENT! I really wish they'd skip the next big-budget raping of my childhood, and greenlight this guy to make an animated film.

    That was great. I love the retro vibe of it.

    At the very least they should give this guy a job working on the direct to DVD DC movies. All of which have a very similar animation style. Something like this is so refreshingly different.

    What does he say after throwing the robot? I listened over and over, but can't grok it. :p

    July 2, 2012: "Bizarro Classic" Animated Short:

    • Veteran animator Rob Pratt has posted a follow-up to his very popular "Superman Classic" animated short which was based on the music of the 1940's Superman serials.
    • In Pratt's latest animated short, entitled "Bizarro Classic", Superman must face his imperfect clone while also avoiding Lois Lane's attempts to prove that Clark Kent & Superman are one-in-the-same. Returning to provide the voice of Superman (as well as Bizarro) is actor John Haymes-Newton, who starred in the first season of "The Adventures of Superboy", alongside his wife Jennifer who returns to voice the character of Lois Lane.
    Cartoon at the link above.

    For the love of god, will someone in power at WB sober the hell up and give Pratt the greenlight to make either an ongoing Superman cartoon or full length movie like this?

    Pretty cool short, although the animation style is a little too cutesy and "Kids WB" for my taste.

    Which is fine with me because I think one of WB's biggest mistakes is not coming up with a Superman that appeals to kids and brings new fans to the character.

    I'd rather see one three-minute story with a beginning, middle and end than two teasers for stories that'll almost certainly never continue.
