Your Basic Elephant Episode
13 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A baby elephant named Susie is stolen from a circus. A ransom is demanded and the big deal is that Superman had promised to bring the elephant to some charity picnic. The pachyderm is left in a shed on what was supposed to be a deserted farm by the two goons. The farm isn't deserted. A woman and her son have just moved in and when the elephant is discovered, the boy assumes it belongs to him. What transpires is an effort by Superman/Kent to find the elephant, but having no leads, he is hamstrung. The guys overplay their hands, though, but it still takes some pretty good deduction to figure out what is going on. The crooks seem to have a lot of technology at their disposal, which leads me to ask why the shoot so low as to just go after an baby elephant.
