Ruby-Spears Superman Cartoon (Crisis 'Til Death III)

Host Anthony Desiato digs into 1988's short-lived Ruby-Spears Superman cartoon as "Crisis 'Til Death" continues! In Part III, Anthony and guest Jeremy Frutkin dive deep into one of the lesser-known entries in the Superman canon, a 13-episode animated series (simply titled SUPERMAN) that aired on CBS during the character's 50th anniversary year and featured a surprising amalgam of prior depictions. Also: a longtime action figure mystery is solved. "Crisis 'Til Death" runs WEEKLY, so come back in 1 week for Part IV!
