The Man of Steel fights crime with help from his friends at the Daily Planet.
For the first season of the series, the E. Clem Wilson Building in Los Angeles was used for the exterior shots of the Daily Planet. Throughout the rest of the series, the building seen as the Daily Planet Building is really Los Angeles City Hall. The rest of the buildings that stand in for "Metropolis" in street scenes were back-lot facades at the old RKO Forty Acres lot in Culver City, which earlier had been Atlanta for Gone with the Wind (1939), and would later serve as Mayberry for The Andy Griffith Show (1960).
This is a job for Superman... I mean, I've got to find him!
In some shots where Superman used the springboard to leap out of frame, the tip of the springboard would bounce back up and appear at the very bottom of the frame.
A series of feature films (usually running 77-78 minutes) were made by editing three television episodes together with linking footage.
