Krypto? Proty? Beppo? Super-Pets All! 1975 SUPERMAN Special Feature! DC Comics!

 Dig this excerpt from a 1975 oversized issue of SUPERMAN FAMILY, another special section from a sensational 70s "Super Spectacular" edition! The delirious DC editors throw the net over the many "Super pets" that populated the swollen SUPERMAN line of books then, before more "serious" writers and fans decided to erase such fun and exiting characters from the Man of Steel mythos! Sure, you knew of Krypto, the Superdog, but did you know about the Super-Ape? How about SuperHorse? And, could anyone forget bouncing Beppo, the Super-Monkey? Say, maybe those later writers were on to something...Click below to enlarge, and keep that poop-scooper ready!

BONUS! Lest you think the above ark of animals represents all the super-pets, look below! That's right, it's SUPERPUP, a failed 1958 attempt to revive and revise the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN TV series, but populated with small actors in dog suits! This doomed and diminutive dog-starred show only saw light as an unaired pilot presentation!
