  • Lucy promises Little Ricky that Superman will attend his upcoming birthday party. When George Reeves is unavailable, Lucy decides to play the Man of Steel.

    A very funny and extremely entertaining episode from start to finish. The cast is (as usual) just plain terrific. Though he is only in the episode for a relatively short time the late George Reeves was excellent. There are many other reasons why this episode works so well. The well written script is one such highlight. It's also great to see actors in cameos before they made it big. The late George O'Hanlon, who went on to become the voice of George Jetson and the late Madge Blake who would soon be known as Bruce Wayne's Aunt Harriet on "Batman" are great in their respective roles. On May 17, 2015 CBS broadcast a colorized version of this episode. The colorization is done extremely well. Yet another reason to see this classic episode of a classic sitcom.
  • Up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's only Lucy in another jam!

    This episode had everything! George O'Hanlon would become George Jetson & the woman looking @ the apartment (Madge Blake) would be known as Aunt Harriet on Batman!

    Seeing Little Ricky getting his wish to meet Superman was nice for his birthday party. But when Ricky couldn't budge the piano, Little Ricky said to let Superman do it, which he does!

    What topped this episode was when that Superman learned that Ricky's been married to Lucy for 15 years, he quips, "And they call me Superman!"
