First Aired


Adventures of Superman was the first television series featuring Superman. The series, which was syndicated rather than being tied to a network, began filming in 1951, and first aired on September 19, 1952. The final first-run episode was broadcast on April 28, 1958. George Reeves starred as Clark Kent/Superman, with Phyllis Coates as the original Lois Lane. In 1953, Noel Neill, who had previously played Lois in two serials, replaced Coates from the second season onward. Jack Larson played Jimmy Olsen and John Hamilton was Perry White. Robert Shayne played the semi-regular character Inspector Henderson of the Metropolis Police Department.

  • At six seasons and 104 episodes, Adventures of Superman was the longest running (Live-Action) superhero TV series, until it was surpassed by Smallville (10 seasons and 218 episodes).
  • Near the end of the 50's, a script was written for a feature film titled Superman and the Secret Planet, in which George Reeves' Superman would've battled an army of Kryptonian criminals. However, the film proved too expensive to produce and was never made.[1]
