It’s unclear exactly why they did so, but the schmaltz-loving madmen over at Everything is Terrible! have edited the 1975 television adaptation of the It’s a Bird…It’s a Plane…It’s Superman musical into a somewhat more digestible three-minute segment. The show was originally a success on Broadway…though you’d never be able to guess that from the campy performances and utter lack of production values showcased here. Say what you will about Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, but at least it doesn’t feature a lyric like “haven’t felt this good since Krypton knows when” belted out by Barry Bostwick’s doppelganger.
