First Known Superman Cartoon Series

I was elated when I found the following clip. Here is the description that is posted on  Like Television.

The first cartoon series based on Superman, created by Dave and Max Fleischer, who also created most of the great Popeye cartoons!

This early Superman gives you the origin of The Man of Steel, plus an adventure with a Mad Scientist!

The clip is from 1942 and while I enjoyed watching it I couldn't help notice the conflict in details. I was lead to believe that when the rocket from Krypton landed on earth, the child, Kal El, was found by George and Martha Kent and raised as their own. These clips say he was raised at an orphanage. Curiouser and curiouser.
