New Superman Short from Rob Pratt: Bizarro Classic (also, in 3D!)
Veteran animator Rob Pratt has just posted a follow up to his hit animated short “Superman Classic”, which – as the name implies – is based on the classic 1940s Superman serials. The short was so awesome that we don’t know why no WB exec has seen it yet and asked Pratt to do a full length one, even if for free.
Pratt’s latest animated short is entitled “Bizarro Classic”, in which Superman finds himself juggling duties as he tries to avoid Lois Lane’s attempts to prove that he and Clark Kent are the same person, all the while facing his imperfect clone – Bizarro.
The voice of The Man of Steel is once again provided by actor John Haymes-Newton, who will also voice Bizarro. His wife, Jennifer, also returns to lend her voice to Lois Lane. (John Haymes-Newton actually starred in the first season of “The Adventures of Superboy”)
“Bizzaro Classic” uses traditional hand drawn animation with digital background and colors to achieve a dynamic effect, but if you’re into that newfangled 3D thing, there’s also a 3D version (make sure you have those old red/blue 3D glasses ready):
