“Superman Classic” by Robb Pratt

Call it a fan film, a proof of concept, or whatever you want, this one-minute traditionally animated Superman piece by Robb Pratt is a fun new take on the character that draws from classic elements, like Mischa Bakaleinikoff’s music from the live-action serial. Pratt, a Disney veteran, who has worked on features like Tarzan and Pocahontas and series like Kick Buttowski and Kim Possible, explains his reasons for making the film at the end of the video. It’s also nice to see the pencil tests in the credits.
