Superman Classic is fan animation meets comic book perfection


Superman Classic is fan animation meets comic book perfection

Superman has had a lot of exposure. Nearly 75 years of comic books, serials, cereals (both!), cartoons, toys, half a dozen films, etc. Every example has a different perspective on the character, from look to personality. Some are hit and some are miss, and those associated, from Smallville’s Tom Welling to Bryan Singer’s recent Superman Returns. But it’s the fans who make those reactions and turn projects into legends – so maybe its the fans who know the character best of all. That’s likely the motivation for Robb Pratt, a Superman fan who used his amazing traditional and digital art and animation talents to create a minute-long toon called Superman Classic. More than just a Max Fleischer reminiscent webisode, this clip features some style and techniques that put many studios to shame. Check it out!

From Mr. Pratt’s official site bio:

Robb Pratt is a Disney veteran, having started at Feature Animation in 1994 as a traditional animator. After animating on such modern Disney classics as “Pocahontas”, “Fantasia 2000”, “Hercules” and “Tarzan”, Robb eventually joined Disney TV Animation as a storyboard artist where he has boarded such shows as “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and “Kim Possible”. After directing the Disney Channel hit series “The Replacements”, Robb has joined DisneyToon Studios as a storyboard artist and is currently working on the upcoming feature “PLANES”.

Whatever he does, let’s hope it involves more animation!!
