Storyline

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.

Trivia

Goofs

The ledge outside the windows wraps around from one apartment to the next. However, in episode 4x03 Lucy climbs out of the window from her apartment and the ledge only appears on that side of the building and doesn't wrap around the adjacent side. See more »

Luce and the cast at their best.
20 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

one of the most under rated classics of the I Love Lucy series, kiddo's to actress Madge Blake as the nervous prospective tenant, and who could forget Fred Mertz, even then as a cheapskate he could still make you laugh. One of the best children based episodes of Lucy for both Kids and Parents alike. My compliments to whoever came up with the idea of teaming those two TV show members definitely deserve credit on this web site..I would of liked to seen maybe Jack Webb make an appearance as a cop or sheriff in the show during it's run, I know networks usually frowned on " loaning out actors ", but think what great memories we would of enjoyed beyond what we have..
