Humpty Dumpty’s Album for Little Children Bud Collyer RCA Records (1958) Bud Collyer supplied the voices of both Superman and his alter ego Clark Kent. A highlight of every Superman episode was the moment when Clark Kent transformed into Superman, an effect which Collyer conveyed by shifting voices while speaking the immortal phrase “This looks like a job for Superman!”. (Collyer’s voice deepened by an octave while making the transition from one identity to the other.) Collyer went on to host Beat the Clock, and in 1956, became the host of To Tell the Truth on CBS.
