Back — back –!

(Fifth Columnists) - Action Comics #36

Historical note: Just more than two weeks after the release of this issue, Warner Bros. released the Merrie Melodies short, “Goofy Groceries.” Written by Melvin Millar and directed by the legendary Bob Clampett, the cartoon features what is commonly thought to be the first on-screen parody of the Man of Steel as the character is brought to life, springing forth from an image on a box of Superguy Soap Chips!

Running approximately 9 minutes, the cartoon pre-dates Superman’s first official foray into animation by nearly six months.
