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. (00:01:25)

The Mad Scientist - S1-E1

Trivia: This short film marks the first appearance on film of the famous introduction, "Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound", and of "Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, no it's Superman". (00:01:50)

The Mad Scientist - S1-E1

Trivia: The scene where Lois takes off out of Perry's office for her scoop has been censored and cut down for most modern releases of this series. In the original airing, when Clark turns to Perry he says, "Chief don't you think that's a dangerous mission for a woman?" In versions you find to day, even the DVD, this has been cut down so that he just says "Chief don't you think that's a dangerous mission?" with a very faint F sound after where they cut it off and quickly fade the scene to black.

The Mad Scientist - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Perry White tells Clark and Lois that the Mad Scientist will strike tonight and then puts his hands on the letter from the scientist. It cuts to a close up of the letter as he begins to turn it. Between the shots, his right hand fingers go from touching the word "Heed" on the letter to being an inch or so below the word, and the fingers on his left hand are suddenly much closer to the paper.
