  • Superman uses a magic trick to make Lois "Invulnerable"!

    3.8
    Magical silliness! Suppose that Superman, Lois and Jimmy are trapped at the bottom of a concrete hole which is sixty feet deep. Superman is powerless, because of continuous Kryptonite exposure. Thick, concrete walls, designed to crush the three heroes begin to close in on them. Superman tells Lois to face the wall, she does so, and then Superman uses a magic trick to levitate her into the air, where her head is in contact with one wall, and her feet are in contact with the other moving wall. You'd think she would snap like a twig, but, instead, her body stops the crushing walls from moving! Now, Jimmy can work his way up the walls to the surface! How? Good question, because the walls are as far apart as Lois is tall. There is no way that Jimmy can brace himself against the two walls and work his way to the surface, but he does! Once at the surface, the crooks realize what is happening and start shouting, "What do we do?, What do we do?" The obvious answer - guard the hole and use their guns to make sure Jimmy doesn't escape. Instead, they wait for Jimmy to redirect the kryptonite projector at them, destroying their flawless plan to eliminate Superman.moreless

    • GOOF-When Superman levitates Lois to stop the walls from closing in on the pit, Jimmy is then instructed to scale the walls to get to the top. Jimmy uses his feet and then stretches out to use his hands to reach the other wall. If this were actually, true, Jimmy would be at least a foot and a half shorter than Lois when in fact he was slightly taller. If anything, he should be scrunched as he tried to get out.

    • George Selk later played Moss Grimmick on "Gunsmoke"
