If you have to convert a lot of image files to eps or to pdf, you can 
do it very quickly with Graphic Converter. It has a "Convert and 
Modify" command that can do this in a batch. And it opens over a 
hundred and fifty different graphics formats, so I bet whatever 
format Superpaint used it will work (I vaguely remember trying 
Superpaint quite a few years ago - a sort of a cross between MacPaint 
and MacDraw :-))

Graphic Converter is shareware and you may even have it in your mac 
(it was bundled with new macs for a while, I don't know if it still 
is); you can look for it in www.versiontracker.com
