Description by OLDIES.com:
George Reeves returns as Superman in 26 episode comprising Seasons 3 and 4 of the program that ran six seasons total. This time his expoits take him to a stuffy European monarchy, a remote desert isle and even a cave in the year 50,000 B.C. Among the villains he face are invisible thieves, Kryptonite-toting thugs and, yes, even scurvy dog-pirates.
Containing one of the most instantly recognizable intro sequences to a TV show ("Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!"), THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN was the first attempt to bring the comic book character to television screens. This first season originally aired in 1952, and established great cinematic characters such as Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and of course Clark Kent himself. By day Kent attempts to live an anonymous existence as a reporter for the Daily Planet, but when trouble comes calling, he transforms into Superman, the last survivor from the planet Krypton. This release includes every episode from the third and fourth seasons of the show.
