Notes

Trivia

  • In the actual Superman cartoons there was the Paramount Logo, the credits. the title, an intro which includes "Disguised as a mild mannered newspaper reporter Clark Kent", followed by what ever the episode is. In the comic the Paramount Logo is followed by the credits and then the action...which implies that Clark and Lois sat through the intro which flat out tells his secret identity!
