The new adventures of Superman by Hal Sutherland( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superman defeats out-of-this-world dangers like Mermen living beneath the Earth's core, energy-controlling aliens and time-traveling magicians. Favorite villains the Toyman, Brainiac and archnemesis Lex Luthor also challenge the Man of Steel, but he doles out justice with a simple mantra. These adventures were the first time that Superman (and his alter ego Clark Kent), Lois Lane, and Perry White had been seen in animated form
Take the money and run by Woody Allen( Visual )

7 editions published between 1969 and 2006 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Woody Allen, Jerry Lewis and possibly Mel Brooks have been the only American comedians since the silent era to gain complete control of their films. Allen's first film as director is a parody of social attitudes, psychological stereotypes, television and film genres using a string of surrealistic gags and jokes, unlikely characters and anything else that occurred to Allen at the time. The criminal career of Virgil Starkwell presented in mock-documentary style provides an apparent structure tenuously holding together a series of fast, discontinuous gags, virtually throwaways based on the single shot rather than the sequence. In this respect Allen's comedy is comparable to that of Mack Sennett. The difference is that Sennett's comedy took physical form while Allen's comedy is marked by an almost savage masochistic wit - our knowledge of his vulnerability makes his comedy funnier
