77 years of Superman: History fo Animated Series

The animated history of Superman is much older than Batman but smaller. I am not counting Justice League nor Superfriends.
Fleischer and Famous Superman (1941-1943)
The Fleischer & Famous Superman cartoons are a series of seventeen animated Technicolor short films released by Paramount Pictures and based upon the comic book character Superman.
The pilot and first eight shorts were produced by Fleischer Studios from 1941 to 1942, while the final eight were produced by Famous Studios, a successor company to Fleischer Studios, from 1942 to 1943. Superman was the final animated series initiated under Fleischer Studios, before Famous Studios officially took over production in May 1942.
Superman: The Animated Series (1996-2000)
Superman: The Animated Series (STAS) was produced by Warner Bros. Animation and originally aired on The WB Television Network from September 6, 1996 to February 12, 2000. The series was the first of several spin-offs of the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series, and was equally praised for its thematic complexity, quality animation, maturity and modernization of its title character. Tim Daly provided the voice.

The New Batman/Superman Adventures (1997-2000)
It was a package series that combined STAS with The New Batman Adventures that aired from 1997–2000 on Kids' WB. Each half-hour episode in the hour and one half block, featured either a single repeat from the original Superman run, the original B:TAS, or a brand new story featuring Batman made specifically for this series. The two animated universes were united in the Superman episode "World's Finest", which tells the story of Batman and Superman's first meeting. New Superman episodes that later aired in the Fall 1998 season and onward are now considered to be the third season of Superman: The Animated Series.
