Very Corny But Fun
27 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A good-hearted kid about 12 hears a plea on the radio about donating to a flood relief, so he asks his "great gramp," who he's apparently living with, if he cannot donate something. Gramps says okay and then goes to the park to play checkers.

A delivery truck comes for the clothes but you can see the two men are shady. The fact one is named "Cueball" is a tip-off. They are in "this racket," as they put it, just to get first dibs on anything good they see. The kid gives them some clothes.

Gramps comes back and is horrified to find out "Bobby" gave away his Prince Albert coat. In turns out the old man didn't believe in banks so he stuffed his life savings inside the coat: $10,000, which he was going to use for Bobby's education.

Bobby goes to the Daily Planet (how he got there is anyone's guess) and asks if someone can contact Superman for help. Meanwhile, a stage actor winds up with the coat because he discovers it and needs it for a performance. The crooks hear about the coat and they, too, go after it.

This turns out to be an extremely corny episode but still a lot of fun to watch.
