Ranking Every DC Animated TV Series From Worst To Best
8. Superman (1940s)
This might actually be classed as cheating, seeing as how the Fleischer Studio productions were actually a series of animated shorts and not a conventional animated series. But screw it, it's the most iconic Superman to have ever been put to animation. He's going on the list.
Those who somehow aren't familiar with this series should really do their best to seek it out, and, since all the shorts are freely available in the public domain, they're not exactly difficult to come across.
One of the most important and indeed influential cartoons ever made, Fleischer Studio's animated shorts went on to inspire multiple works in the comic book medium, including the style of Batman: The Animated Series and other subsequent works in the DC Animated Universe.
