OTISBURG: A Visit to the Funniest Place in SUPERMAN

Come celebrate the biggest laugh-out-loud moment of the movie!

If you’re anything like me you think Superman: The Movie is fantastic. But if you happen to actually be me, you think Superman: The Movie is the greatest superhero film ever made.

Well, podcasters extraordinaire Rob Kelly and Chris Franklin evidently agree and they’ve been killing it with the Superman Movie Minute, a show that lovingly dissects the 1978 flick five minutes at a time.

Rob’s also a 13th Dimension contributor (and maybe Chris will be too!), so I pretty much threatened him to get on an episode. And guess what: They paid me off rewarded me by letting me come on and talk about the five-minute sequence that includes the funniest scene in the movie:


Otisburg. It’s a little bitty place. Just like the sign says:

I totally lifted this design from a site that makes unauthorized T-shirts. (Click here.) If you made it, let me know and I’ll credit you here. In the meantime, maybe you’ll make some sales. Not that I condone that sort of thing.

Anyway, we had a great time recording the podcast and you should come check it out. Click here or get it on iTunes.

And while you’re at it, go back and start at the beginning of the feed. It’s a terrific way to celebrate Superman: The Movie’s 40th anniversary year.
