These cartoons have been in the public domain and thus available in inexpensive, poor-quality collections. This 2009 set from Warner Home Video is reproduced from the original film elements, and while some source damage is still visible, the improved color and clarity make previous versions nearly unwatchable. (These are the same remasterings that were released in the 2007 Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition.) Also, rather than cramming them onto a single disc, the shorts are given two discs, adding a featurette on Superman the hero and a 12-minute history of the Fleischer project, including interviews with Max's son and modern animators such as Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, who discuss the Fleischers' influence on the highly regarded Superman and Batman animated series from the 1990s. --David Horiuchi
My grandson loves them and fell in love with Superman watching them.
This 2 disc set includes the entire series of the Fleischer Superman cartoons and it's probably as good as it gets when it comes to sound and picture quality.
Having been considered part of the public domain for decades, these shorts have been issued numerous times on VHS and DVD with varying degrees of quality.

Warner is scaling back their releases in 2009 so we're lucky to even see this release. Maybe somewhere down the line we'll see a Blu-ray release with a full restoration, not the partial restoration of this set. The color correction looks nice but there is still too much noise and dirt.
