Watch: Robb Pratt's Hand-Drawn Animated Short 'Superman Classic'
We know that we're only a few years away from seeing Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel in all of its glory (we hope), but in the meantime, let's step back in time to check out Superman Classic. Animator Robb Pratt (Home on the Range, "The Replacements") really loves Superman and decided to direct his own self-animated short called Superman Classic. The footage is also set to music from the old Superman Saturday matinee serials and he even got John Newton, who played Superboy in the 1980s TV series, to voice Clark Kent. It's a quick watch and so fun to see, so check out Pratt's animated Superman short below.
I owe thanks to Heat Vision and 24 Frames for both originally posting this video. Not only is it great to see homemade hand-drawn animation thriving like this in the digital age, but it's wonderful to see Pratt put his passion into something as fantastical as this. I'm not sure if he's hinting that they should make a movie like this, or maybe that they should hire him, but it was great to see anyway. We haven't had the chance to talk much about Warner Premiere's series of animated DC movies, but I know a few of them are quite awesome. There will be lots more Superman in the news as Zack Snyder continues pre-production, so stick around.
