Superman

Revealing mistake: As Lois says she wants a chance to crack the case on her own, Clark turns his head to look at her. As she does, the shadow effects on his collar flash suddenly several times, his collar going in and out of the light rapidly on the right side.

Continuity mistake: Perry White has the Mad Scientist’s letter straight on his desk, but then it turns it to a diagonal angle when he reads it to Lois and Clark. Lois says that she wants to crack the case on her own and the shot pans back to Perry as he thinks about it for a moment, and this shot shows the letter still diagonal on the desk. Then Lois shouts out "Thanks Chief" and dashes off before he can respond and the image cuts to a different angle. Now suddenly the letter is straight on his desk like it was before he turned it.

Continuity mistake: The Mad Scientist fires his weapon on a bridge and it chews away a large section of it. It then cuts to a video feed the scientist is watching and the damage of the bridge between what was shown and what is on his view screen do not match up.

Trivia: This series is where Superman first "learned" how to fly. Before this series, in the comics and radio, he was only able to jump very high and far, hence "leap tall buildings in a single bound". They decided that it just didn't look right on film and they decided to have him fly, but it's still depicted as if he has to get a jumping start.

Trivia: The Fleischer brothers were at first reluctant to take on making this series. This is because that it would require a much more realistic design and style of animation than they usually do. Trying to discourage Paramount from giving it to them, they said they would need about $100,000 per episode, approximately four times the budget of most Disney films at the time. To their shock, Paramount agreed to give them half that, which has made the classic Superman series, accounting for inflation and adjustable dollars, the highest budget animated series in history.

Trivia: The way the sound effects for Krypton exploding was achieved in the opening sequence was by the creators ripping an apple apart by hand and then amplifying the sound.
