Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The original Krypto story was written by Elliott S! Maggin, where Krypto was a test puppy but the rocket arrived when Superman was just Clark Kent, and he was living in the farm, and Krypto was still a puppy. This story is modified so that Krypto arrives as a full-grown puppy near Metropolis and gets a different owner, and Superman is also full-grown.

      Kevin: Hi, I'm Kevin. (Krypto hides in a bush and spies Kevin who is talking to Andrea and Andrea is holding Streaky) You're And-rea, right?
      Andrea: No, I'm An-dre-a.
      Kevin: Oh, well, I think we moved next door to you. Do you wanna play?
      (Streaky shakes his head 'yes' at Kevin)

    • (After Krypto comes back down with Kevin's freesbee in his mouth)
      Kevin: You can fly just like Superman! (Looks at Krypto's symbol) You're even wearing the S. (He presses the symbol and the intergalactic communicator comes out. Kevin grabs it)
      Kevin: What's this? Looks like my grandpa's hearing. (He puts the communicator inside his right ear and suddenly he hears Krypto talking)
      Krypto: And I think it's called an intergalactic communicator.
      Kevin: Wow! I can understand you! This thing... It must be some kind of communicator.
      (Krypto barks and Kevin puts the communicator back inside his ear)
      Kevin: What?
      Krypto: I said: "That's what I said".
      Kevin: Who are you? Where'd you come from?
      Krypto: Krypto from Krypton! And that's a planet.
      Kevin: That's where Superman's from!
      Krypto: Who?
      (Meanwhile Kevin shows Krypto about Superman in the news paper)
      Kevin: Superman, our greatest hero. See? You're just like 'im.
      Krypto: But I never saw him before. And my boy was a lot smaller. I'm afraid that I don't belong to anyone anymore.
      Kevin: No one?
      (Krypto lowers his head with sadness and shakes it 'no' at Kevin)
      Kevin: You do now.

    • Kevin: (Sarcastically) Sure, Kevin, you'll love it in Metropolis. Think of all the new kids you'll meet, all the new friends you'll make. Thanks Mom, thanks Dad.

    • Krypto: You'd think they would make these rockets puppy proof.

    • (After he comes out of the ship and looks around)
      Krypto: It's so beautiful... So green. And the sun: so yellow! I can see in color!
