Those studios developed many short films including "Screen Songs", "Talkartoons", "Betty Boop", and of course, the ones here we are talking about; among others. Mr. Dave Fleincher also directed, with the support of his brothers, two featured films: "Gulliver's Travels" in 1939 and "Mr. Bug Goes To Town" in 1941.
These "Superman" short films I am going to attach you next are really admirable because they were made drawing picture by picture. So one motion picture lasting eight minutes would need around 10.000 pictures, which, as you can imagine requires a huge work and dedication.
The story is based upon the homonym comic strip, created by Jerome Siegel and Joe Shuster.

Billion Dollar Limited
Terror on the Midway
The Magnetic Telescope
"Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound; the infant of Krypton in now the Man of Steel: SUPERMAN."
