Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: There is division over the post-Fleischer cartoons of the series. While some find them to be just as visually impressive as the Fleischer-directed shorts, others disliked the relative cheapness of the cartoons and forced science fiction undertones within the plots. The addition of more [[UnfortunateImplications stereotypical villains]], particularly Japanse and German spies ([[UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo for obvious reasons]]), doesn't help matters.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArtSugarWiki/AwesomeArt: The background settings and objects, especially during the Fleischer era, are so realistic and well-drawn that you'd expect this to be something from Creator/{{Disney}}, but bear in mind this is from the same people that brought us the ''WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/BettyBoop'' cartoons.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Or rather, DC has wasted a perfectly good character. [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever The Arctic Giant]] can never be called a {{Notzilla}}, because it ''predates'' Franchise/Godzilla Godzilla. As such, Superman can fight this potentially recurring giant dinosaur time and again, without fear of being sued by Toho, because it ''circumvents'' dreaded Internal Copyright Laws. Yet... it hasn't reappeared since its debut in the 40s.

** Superman fights a dinosaurian PrehistoricMonster that is bigger than most buildings and smashes everything in its path. Essentially, this episode is Superman vs franchise/{{Godzilla}}, only 12 years before Godzilla was first created!

* FridgeLogic: In "Jungle Drums", Lois is initially wearing her usual brown suit when she is captured by the natives and when she is threatened by the Nazis. Later on when she's on the pyre she's in a different white dress. Did the entirely male-populated Nazi-base just happen to have a spare white dress lying around that they decided to put her in for the ceremony?
** Maybe they just removed the brown suit and left the "underdress".

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The rotoscoping looks amazing, and the animation still holds up well to this day. The special effects work is also particularly notable, such as the battle and subsequent meltdown of the giant laser cannon from "The Mad Scientist".
