Superman (1941)

Directed by Dave Fleischer

In light of all of the Batman/Dark Knight Rises movie buzz going on right now, here is a Superman short.  This was the first series of animated superhero/sci-fi shorts, paving the way for every series of its genre today.  Without the inexpensive medium of animation to expand the audience for comic book heroes, and to show the feasibility of comic book characters on film, perhaps we wouldn’t have things like The Dark Knight trilogy.  Thanks Fleischer brothers!
