Olsen The Professor
28 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jimmy Olsen is working with his recently-purchased chemistry set, trying to develop a new kind of soda pop. He's in the basement and the "pop" accidentally sprays out of the window on to the pants of a passing pedestrian. That guy comes down to Olsen's lab is ready to punch him out as his pants are eaten away with the liquid Olsen sprayed on him. Superman comes out of nowhere (he just happened to be flying around the neighborhood) and the goon runs off. Jimmy shows him another invention and Superman has to save him again as the experiment blows up but The Man Of Steel saw it coming and covered it up. At that point, he urges Jimmy to take up a safer hobby, like butterfly collecting!

The next morning Olsen is in Perry White's office with a successful experiment. He's discovered a liquid that when applied to a surface, makes it temporarily float. This "anti-gravity" liquid is big news so White calls the U.S. Government and a man comes down to see for himself. He thinks it's "Professor Olsen" until White corrects him.

Well, in a short time, you know the crooks are going to hear about this and - voilà - the same guy (played by frequent bad-guy guest Milton Frome) comes back to Olsen's lab and once again Jimmy (and Lois, of course) are in trouble!!

Another preposterous episode, designed more for kids....but still fun to watch.
