Superman is a buzzkill

Click for wet blanket-size

I can honestly say I don't remember ever seeing these PSAs before. Apparently this is the fifth in a series, but who knows how many there actually were.

The weirdest thing about this is the idea of Superman casually strolling down the street asking people where they're going.

"Hi -- Where are you going?"

"What's it to you, narc?"

I remember these PSA's quite well. As a child of the 1970's who learned to read (and much of his ethics and morality) these Bicentenial-era "Justice for all includes children" spots did affect me, and informed me.

Scott: Ha ha! Yo, Supes, why you all up in mah grill?! Psh!

Captain: Do you remember any of the other PSAs? What other kind of advice did they have for kids? I'm a child of the 70s, too (my birthday is next month, people — send gifts) but I just don't remember these! I'd love to see the rest of them, though.

Thanks for commenting!

Wouldn't Batman make more sense for this urban setting?


There are a couple of these PSAs, all featuring Superman from what I remember. If I find one in a book, I'll scan it and send it to you. They're goofily fun.

I'm pretty sure Batman would end up smacking one of those kids — just to make an example of 'im.

If you can find any, Rob, I'd love to see them!

If memory serves, they were often in mono on the inside front covers.
