Stamp Day for Superman (1954) Colonel Bleep (1956) and Super President and Spy Shadow (1967)

Clark Kent and Lois Lane, out for a stroll, discover a jewelry robbery in progress. Lois gets a good look at one of the burglars. Later Clark and Jimmy Olsen visit Jimmy's old school to discuss Superman's visit there to promote the U.S. Treasury Department's Savings Stamp program. In the meantime, Lois is captured by Blinky, the jewelery burglar she spotted. When Lois doesn't show up to join Clark and Jimmy, Clark realizes she's in trouble and arranges for Superman to save the day and still make his appearance at the school's Stamp Day. Yes, it is a awful as it sounds. One wonders if the US at one of its most shameful moments in history under the thumb of Joseph McCarthy would Hollywood would have just told the treasury to blow if they were not terrified of being blacklisted as communists. This really reeks of McCarthyism especially the fact that it was only shown in schools.
Colonel Bleep in "Scatch and His Feathered Friends" Colonel Bleep is one of the all-time great cartoon curiosities in this episode From their earth headquarters on Zero Zero Island, Colonel Bleep (a spaceman), Squeek (cowboy) and Scratch (a caveman) battled intergalactic villains such as Doctor Destructo, the master criminal of the universe, The Black Knight, and Captain Patch, a displaced pirate.

Super President: The President and the Pirate (1967)
Super President was a cartoon that aired Saturday mornings on NBC from September 16, 1967 to December 28, 1968. The series was produced by the DePatie-Freleng animation company. If there is a hell for animators DePatie and Freleng are standing there with surprised looks on their faces. These dudes were to animation what the Westboro Baptist Church is to Christianity (who will also one day be standing in Hell with surprised looks on their faces.) Animation Hell is a lot nicer than than regular Hell--animation Hell is just a place bad animators go when they die to watch bad cartoons for all eternity.

Spy Shadow in Bandit Gambit. Richard Vance who works for interspy has mastered the secret art of concentration and ejects the powers of hi inner self to produce his shadow called SPY SHADOW. Spy Shadow cannot materialize where there is no light, as without no light there can be no shadow. Spy Shadow is invincible in light, bullets pass right through him and has great strength. He is under control of his master Richard Vance to fight criminals and protect mankind.
