Clark Kent and Lois Lane travel to Silsby, Texas, site of the deepest well ever drilled. But when they arrive, the well is being shut down and the oil company manager present isn't saying why. Meanwhile, two short beings with large heads and furry hands come up from the well to explore. Luke Benson leads a mob of townspeople wanting to kill the "unknown people." Despite Superman's efforts to calm things down, the mob has tracked the two creatures to the top of a dam, trying to kill them. What the mob doesn't know is the creatures cause things they touch to glow in the dark -- and may be radioactive. Written by

The reason that Jack Larson and John Hamilton are not listed in the "The Unknown People" episodes is rather simple...they weren't in the Movie that these two episodes were edited from. See more
When Lois and Clark drive up to the well to look around their car lights are on indicating it is night yet it seems to be dusk at best. Even when they exit the car they cast distinct shadows. All while the whole town gathers looking for them it appears to be day or again at best dusk. The only difference is when Lois or the little girl see the little men in the window it looks pitch black outside. Also when they are on top of the dam it appears to be night time too. See more
