Lucy competes with her friend Carolyn Appleby over invitations and scheduling for Little Ricky's birthday party. When her husband Ricky mentions that Superman star George Reeves is in town, Lucy tries to get Reeves to come to Little Ricky's party, sure that this will make it a much bigger draw than the one Carolyn is hosting. Ricky tries, but Reeves can't make the party. So Lucy disguises herself as Superman, but gets herself into great peril. Fortunately the "real" Superman does show up to save the day.
Ricky is on vacation from work and is always in Lucy's way. Lucy & Ethel decide to start building a BBQ in order to trick Ricky & Fred into taking over a man's job. Unfortunately, Lucy loses her wedding ring during the process.
Lucy organizes a Revolutionary Day Celebration, including a statue dedication. Ricky is going to give the dedication speech. Lucy accidentally breaks the statue and decides to step in with stone makeup to take its place for the ceremony.
