Watch old Superman cartoons

I quite enjoy many of the old cartoons from the Fleischer brothers, such as Betty Boop and Popeye, but their Superman cartoons, which aired in the early forties and are now available on DVD, never really turned me on. I think they were well-made, I was just never a big fan of Superman, I felt he lacked the vulnerability that made other heroes so interesting. Vintage Tooncast, one of many animation podcasts I subscribe to, has been showing a ton of these old Superman cartoons, so if you liked them, mosey on over and root through the archive. The other cartoons he has up are all worth checking out, as well.
