A giant prehistoric reptile is found in the Artic and is brought back to the Metropolis Museum for observation. The Museum Engineer, who is busy talking to Lois, carelessly sets his oil can down on a ledge while looking at her legs as she climbs the stairs. The oil can vibrates along the ledge and falls down into the turbine which runs the freezer, getting ground up inside and causing the turbine to jam. As the other engineers work to repair the turbine, the temperature rises. The ice starts melting, and the monster comes to life. The giant beast begins a rampage, attacking the citizens of Metropolis. Luckily, Clark Kent and Lois Lane are at the Metropolis Museum, and Clark quickly changes into Superman. He tries to stop the giant lizard, in spite of Ms. Lane's efforts to get her story and get into Superman's way. The Man Of Steel gets the better of the Artic giant, tying him up, thus saving the city and Lois Lane once again.

A group of dangerous terrorists- known only as The Bulleteers- are destroying Metropolis' city landmarks and utilities. They issue a ultimatum: unless the Mayor and city officials turn over the entire contents of the city treasury within 48 hours, the Police building, power systems and other city services will be destroyed. Of course, the Mayor and the city officials have no intention of giving in to the extortionists; they prepare themselves and the city for attack. After reading (in the Daily Planet, of course!) of the city's refusal to give in to their demands, the angry Bulleteers take off in their BulletCar for an all-out assault on Metropolis. The attack is merciless- even the Daily Planet's presses are wrecked. When Lois Lane drives off to the scene of the Bulleteers' latest attack, Clark Kent heads for the service entrance of The Daily Planet, and, making sure that he is not seen, he changes to his secret identity. He flies to the scene where he saves Lois from The Bulleteers' clutches, and then he wrecks The BulletCar, bringing the terrorists to justice.

When Lois is kidnapped by a mad scientist, she is given a demonstration of his energy cannon as he attacks Metropolis. Only Superman can stop it in his first cinematic adventure. Max Fleischer and Dave Fleischer were reluctant to take this assignment because it would require much more realistic designs and animation than they usually used. They tried to discourage the studio by stating they would need a budget of around $100,000 per short, four times the budget of an average Walt Disney cartoon, which then had the highest budgets in animation). To their shock, Paramount executives agreed to the amount, which made the Superman series--in adjusted dollars--the biggest-budgeted animation series in film history.
