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. Written by
