* DomesticApplianceDisaster: A b-plot once involved Ma and Pa Kent [[SwappedRoles swapping roles]]. [[ADayInHerApron Jonathan tried to do the house chores]], but among others disasters such as turning his son's white shirts pink after washing them with his Superman cape, he also teared a hole in the cape with a hot iron. [[note]]Still, it's implied Jonathan [[MenCantKeepHouse cannot keep a house]] because he belongs to an older generation. Clark, on the other hand, was still single at the time and did not have his mother's help on an everyday basis. But it did not prevent him to be very capable with house chores; as a proof he could keep his shirts white and without iron holes.[[/note]]

** When a dose of Red Kryptonite gives Lois Clark's powers, she takes to a costume as Ultra Woman. She wears a domino mask that she thinks does little and so when Jimmy and Perry race up to her on her first rescue, she's terrified they'll recognize her but Clark says not to worry. To Lois' shock, the two do indeed fail to realize it's her.
-->'''Lois''': How can they not know? I work with them every day! How can they not look past a small mask and see what is so obvious...''(sees Clark just smirking at her and rolls her eyes.)''

The show suffered, to an extent, from the so-called "''Moonlighting'' [[ShippingBedDeath curse]]" as well as the bane of superhero TV shows: restraints on budget and their effect on the story (see also ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' and ''Series/{{Heroes}}''): Superman rarely fought someone who was a physical match for him, with most villains either being secretive like Luthor or -- much like the earlier [[TheAdventuresOfSuperman George Reeves series]] -- resorting to kidnapping innocents. Occasionally, Superman's power levels were lessened to add drama, but the consistency of those vulnerabilities [[UselessSuperpowers was spotty at best.]] Making up for this were the engaging ''Daily Planet'' cast, a fair amount of wit, and most notably, the phenomenal chemistry between Cain and Hatcher. It's also one of the first superhero series aimed at women as much as men.

'''''Lois & Clark''''' is a live-action Franchise/{{Superman}} series which aired from 1993-1997. Like other Superman-related media of that time (otherwise known as the ComicBook/PostCrisis era), Clark identifies as the "real" personality -- with Superman being the role he puts on -- and has the support of his still-living foster parents.

* SomethingElseAlsoRises: The episode ''The Phoenix'' has a SexySilhouette of Lois, causing Clark to pop his cork...of champagne, and then ''he'' got a SexySilhouette, causing her to wet the carpet...with spilled champagne. Subtle.
** In the pilot, Clark sees Lois [[SheCleansUpNicely cleans up nicely]], making a big entrance at formal dress society do, and ''floats six or seven inches off the ground'' as he gazes at her in awe. In the commentary track the show's creator says it means exactly what you think it means.

T'was simply known as ''TheNewAdventures of [[TheFullNameAdventures Superman]]'' (no direct relation to the older animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfSuperman'') in some countries outside the USA, due to executives believing non-American viewers wouldn't understand the {{pun}} on 19th-century American explorers [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_and_Clark_Expedition Lewis and Clark]]. Go figure.

** "Pilot" has several, especially from ''Film/{{Superman}}: TheMovie''. A spectator shouting "What the hell is that?", Superman answers "A friend", and Superman claiming to be a hoax.

** In "Home Is Where the Hurt Is", Superman is infected with a rare virus from Krypton, similar to Virus X from ''Superman'' #156 "The Last Days of Superman" published in July/August 1950. Only in the comic, he was actually affected by a piece of kryptonite in Jimmy Olsen's camera.
