The Bulleteers
“Superman” Theatrical Cartoons - March 27, 1942

Even moreso than the old theatrical Looney Tunes and Mickey Mouse cartoons, which relied heavily on sight gags, the Fleischer Studio Superman cartoons are some of the most visually dense animated shorts in the history of the medium. For the last several generations of Westerners who have grown up on cycled animation, re-used clips and backgrounds, lowered frame rates, static faces and gag or dialogue driven cartoons, the old Superman series presents a genuinely cinematic experience.

Although you will miss out on the full experience, it’s possible to watch animated shows like Archer, The Simpsons, The Venture Brothers, et al, and periodically look away from the screen without missing the essence of the story. The Superman cartoons, however – and the Bulleteers being a prime example – rely almost entirely on the visuals to communicate the action and atmosphere. Imagine missing not only the sight of the Bulleteer’s deadly vehicle smashing buildings in vibrant explosions, but the looming spectacle of the loudspeaker booming out over Metropolis from the precarious mountain lair, the cathedral ceilings of City Hall, the shadowbox scale of the police scattering before the oncoming missile of doom …

What does football mean to you? Do you play with family and friends? Do you enjoy watching it? Are you a former player who always wanted to go pro? No matter what, by reading this piece, you can understand your favorite sport much better.

You need to keep safety in mind when playing football. Stay safe no matter what you are doing. Use proper protective gear and procedures at all times.

Good football players are nimble. To help improve flexibility, try several exercises such as jumping rope, jumping over cones and running through tires. Fast thinking and fast reflexes are crucial when playing football. And these exercises practice both. Train hard using these exercises, and agility will quickly follow.

The game of football has such an abundance of strategies and techniques that learning them all is probably impossible. Being a smart player can make up for your lack of strength and speed. Look to beat the opposition through mental strength over physical.

Participate as a supportive member of a team. Teamwork is crucial to a successful football team. Your team is going to enjoy wins and suffer losses together. Always think we, not I. With that in mind, being a supportive teammate is essential to building confidence in those around you. When the whole group is confident, then it seems winning comes a little easier.

You must be able to read the opposing team’s formation if you’re playing defense. The spot the receiver chooses for lining up should give you great insight about the play even before it starts. If the receiver lines up very wide, there is a good chance the play is a pass. Of course, this could be a decoy, but it leaves the offense with fewer blockers inside.

Whether is just a hobby or a career goal, the passion that you have for football should not be forgotten. Your game will improve if you learn more about it. Practice whenever possible, and soon you’ll see some major improvements in your abilities.
