A Superman balloon first featured in the parade in 1939. The balloon was so large it needed to be handled by 50 people.
The third Superman balloon first featured in the 1982 Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and was created to place Superman in a horizontal flying pose.
However the same Superman balloon didn't fair too well a year later in 1985.
Thanks to Ron Zaguli for some of the images.
