Storyline

Diner owner Tony (Tito Vuolo) keeps a pair of protection racketeers (Terry Frost, Paul Burke) from bothering him by claiming (falsely) to be close friends with Superman (George Reeves). Unfortunately, Tony gets in over his head when he records an incriminating conversation between himself and the crooks, and he is forced to solicit the aid of reporter Clark Kent--little imagining that Clark and Superman are one and the same. The climax of this episode is a slapstick pie fight, in which no one is spared a custard massage. Written by anyamarie42

Tony Get His Wish
3 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tony runs a small diner down the street from the Daily Planet building. He likes to talk and claims he is a personal friend of Superman (he even has a rifle with a bent barrel which he attributes to his "friend." People from the Planet frequently eat lunch at his place. Tony is being extorted by a couple of bad guys. They come in the first of each week and take their protection pay. Tony keeps his mouth shut, but a large number of signed affidavits that are being kept at the newspaper. The two men and their boss plot to steal the affidavits and go after the store owners, but they need to distract Superman. Lois is out of town so they hatch a scheme to make it seem as if she is going to be kidnapped. Superman will respond and leave the door open for them. They set Tony up with the Lois Lane information and Clark, who is a regular, needs to figure out what is going on. There is a hilarious scene where Tony tries to record the thugs' conversation but a couple of kids come in and play swing music and dance, drowning out the conversation. The conclusion is pretty silly, but this is a fun episode nevertheless.
