DC Animated Club Presents: Saturday Morning Watch-Along #1: Superman: The Animated Series at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET on Saturday, July 31st, 2021

Hello, @DCAnimatedClub! A new era of our hallowed club has begun, and to ring it in, we’re bringing Saturday Morning Watch-Alongs into a whole new era! :partying_face:

If you aren’t aware, Saturday Morning Watch-Alongs were originally instituted during the DC Universe days of our wonderful platform. After a period of modest activity/success, and as all good things must do, they came to an end.

However, nothing good stays down forever, so I am quite happy to ring in the beginning of my era as the new leader of the DC Animated Club by bringing Saturday Morning Watch-Alongs back!

Read on for the sweet as a bowl of Corn Pops details!

What: Saturday Morning Watch-Along #1, featuring Superman: The Animated Series, season 1, episodes 1-3, “The Last Son of Krypton”.

When: This Saturday, July 31st, at 8 AM Pacific Time/11 AM Eastern Time.

Where: In this thread at the above start time. :point_up:t2: :stopwatch:

Why: Because DC animation kicks ass, as does watching it with your fellow members while eating a bowl of cereal, for Saturday morning cartoons and cereal go perfectly with one another.

How to participate:

  • We begin at 8 AM PT/11AM ET. Please be on time, but if you should be late, we’ll happily catch you up. :superman_hv_4:

  • Once the clock strikes, we all push Play. As we are watching multiple episodes and want everyone on the same page, we will be taking a two minute break at the end of episodes 1 and 2 just to be 100% sure everyone is at the same spot for when the next episode begins.

  • You’ll need one device (TV, computer, phone, etc) to watch our program on, while using another device (computer, phone, etc) to comment with. It’s a 2 (devices) for 1 (Watch-Along) entertainment bo-nan-za! :partying_face: :cowboy_hat_face:

  • Superman: The Animated Series is available on DVD and Digital, while streaming on HBO Max in HD. Whatever your format of choice, please be ready to take to our friendly Watch-Along skies as soon as it’s time to push Play. :superman_hv_4:

  • You’re also welcome to munch on a bowl of your favorite cereal during our festivities, as cartoons and cereal go hand in hand. Corn Pops, Cookie Crunch, Fruit Loops, whatever you like. :clark_hv_4:

That’s all there is to it! Very simple, and so easy. :slight_smile:

If you were around during the original run of Saturday Morning Watch-Alongs, then welcome back! If you’re brand new to the affair, then “Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!” :grin:

I’ll see you, right here in this thread this Saturday morning at 8 AM Pacifc/11 AM Eastern as we ring in the 25th anniversary of the show that expanded the DC Animated Universe into a truly epic fan-favorite, Superman: The Animated Series! :superman:

Stay animated! :superman_hv_4:

Yes, my plan to increase cereal sales nationwide is beginning to pay off. Mwa-ha-ha! :smiling_imp:

Cereal is fan-tastic. Anything in mind? I’m a Corn Pops man, myself. “Gotta have my Pops!” and all that. :nerd_face:

Hahaha. Not sure. I haven’t had cereal in a long time. I don’t think I’ve had Corn Pops! Surprising. Maybe Peanut Butter Captain Crunch of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

:scream: Great Krypton! You’ve never had Corn Pops?

I’m going to telepathically will a box to you. If they don’t show up, blame Luthor. :wink:

I think a 50/50 bowl of Corn Pops and Cinnamon Toast Crunch would be a good sugar blast for our WAL. I may just try that…

Does Cinnamon Toast Crunch coffee creamer count? Think of it as the adult way to get all those important vitamins (sugar) in my bloodstream.

Paraphrasing the words of the great Teri Hatcher, it’s real and it’s spectacular.

I got my cereal - Corn Pops, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros, and strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats. I haven’t bought cereal in years. I used to love watching Super Friends on Saturday. I can’t wait!

Very exciting! I have to make the tough decision between Corn Pops, Life, and Rice Krispies… maybe I’ll just have all three. :yum:

@DickGrayson_TheBoyFriendWonder Cinnamon Toast Crunch will be a-okay. :slight_smile: :ok_hand:t2:

@darkstarz Could someone…let’s say…me, drink that Cinnamon Toast Crunch creamer on its own?

I’m…uh…clears throat inconspicuously asking for a…friend…who just happens to look like me. :smirk:

BTW, they were spectacular.

@Bar-El Rock on! What episode are you on, now?

@JusKris-El You know you have to pour a big 'ol bowl of all three of those now, yeah?

That’s what I’ve done when I’ve had a multitude of cereals at one time, at least. :slight_smile:

Frankenberry, Count Chocula and Boo Berry all in the same bowl? Hell. YEAH. :yum: :bowl_with_spoon:

Speaking of Super Friends, they’ll be along soon.

@Shayera.Hol You’re coming? YES!!! :hugs: :partying_face:

As for your cereals, just SQUISH 'em all into one bowl and let that eventual sweet sugar high just wash over ya’s. :sunglasses:

I’m going to have the strawberry one separately. You know, re-fill during episodes.

Super Friends, yay!

I may or may not be able to make it tomorrow…it will all depend on if I can get up and run all my errands before hand or not

Ah, yes. A sugar reload is a grand idea. Good thinking. :brain: :+1:t2:
