Showdown

Can it be true that Superman has become an outlaw? Actually, it's a petty thief named Severn, who wears a Superman costume while committing various robberies, but the police don't know that. Reporters Lois Lane and (especially!) Clark Kent are anxious to prove Superman's innocence, but instead they're assigned to cover the opening night at the Metropolis Opera House. As luck would have it, the phony Superman picks this very moment to steal jewelry from the various operagoers--prompting Clark to discard his rented tuxedo, don cape and tights as the REAL Superman, and settle accounts with his larcenous lookalike.

The Underground World

Fri, Jun 18, 1943 10 mins

The offices of the Daily Planet are visited by a man named Henderson. He tells the assembled that he is an explorer, as is his father, who has been missing for some time. Henderson wants to launch an expedition into the deep, mysterious caverns that his father was exploring when he disappeared, and he wants the Planet to finance it. Reporters Lois Lane and Clark Kent join the adventurer, with Lois to travel immediately with him down a river into the caverns, and Clark to join them via a separate boat. Lois and Henderson find land and disembark, but their boat slips away and crashes into a cavern wall, where it explodes. They are then captured by some fierce creatures, half-bird, half-man, who plan to sacrifice them by throwing them into a pit of fire. Clark, who had heard the earlier explosion, discovers what is going on and switches to his alter ego, Superman. Superman quickly mops up the birdmen, saves Lois and Henderson, and seals up the caverns leading to the birdmen's land. At the end of the film, editor Perry White burns Lois and Clark's story, saving he can't print it because it is too unbelievable.

Episode 8

Secret Agent

Fri, Jul 30, 1943 10 mins

En route to a humdrum assignment, reporter Clark Kent is caught in the crossfire between Nazi agents and a beautiful blonde American counterspy. The girl has a cache of valuable documents in her possession, and the Nazis are determined to prevent her from delivering the papers to Washington. Though captured by the enemy spies, Clark manages to burst full-force into his true identity as Superman, racing to the female agent's rescue as she faces certain death on a sabotaged bridge. Bud Collyer does not provide the voices of Clark Kent and Superman in this episode, which may explain why the "two" characters only have one line of dialogue between them (Some historian believe that this line was delivered by Sam Parker, who'd voiced the title role in Fleischer's Gulliver's Travels).
