DC Nation Previews ‘Baby Superman’ Short [Video]
The DC Nation programming block’s anthology-style shorts have yielded some fun surprises (as well as delivered on some sure things) thus far on Cartoon Network. Last week fans saw Plastic Man revive the glory of his “lost” pilot and Aardman put their stop-motion spin on Batman, Superman and more. The nontraditional approach continues this Saturday with Baby Superman, which sees a dying blonde version of the Man of Steel pass his powers to a random baby via the power of his magical cape that he wears as a diaper. Combining the aesthetic of Max Fleischer’s Superman animation from the 1940s with more modern anime conventions, the short is almost good enough to make you forget about how offensive “Japoteurs” is… almost. Check out a clip from Baby Superman, along with stills from the upcoming short, after the jump.
