Am I the only one that has noticed this but Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow "borrows" scenes directly from Max Fleischer's 1941 cartoon Superman, the episode I'm referring to particularly is titled "mechanical monsters". If you find the cartoon (I'll see if I can find a link) you will see similarities in scenes, the robots (how they fly) and in particular the scene with the cops shooting at the robots. In the Sky Captain 15 minute original short I believe he also called his episode Mechanical Monsters.
Anyway, I ramble, just thought it a bit too obvious.
