Oh I never saw it, but when I was little, I wasn't really interested in the super hero stuff.

I just got the season 1 set 2 days ago. I was a Superman nut, so this was a must for me. It was a fun show. Haven't seen it since it went off the air nearly 20 years ago!

With the new Superman movie coming out next year, I hope it will revive some interest in getting more seasons of this show out!

Warner Archive was tweeting about them showing Superboy at a recent film con or something. A few people asked about more Superboy on DVD and the site reported on Twitter, "It would seem we were alluding to it, doesn't it?" You can read that two ways.

It was a syndicated show. Season 1 was limited by a small budget, but it was a fun show. The #2 syndicated show at the time behind only Star Trek:TNG.

Warner Archive is becoming pretty cool for releasing stuff like this.
