A professor (Sterling Holloway) has tried to develop a tasty stamp glue - but by mistake, he has developed a very powerful explosive instead. Somehow, a trio of enemy agents (Joseph Vitale, Otto Waldis, Toni Carroll) got wind of this, and they soon birdnap the professor's talking parrot, the only one who actually knows the formula - you know, out of security and secrecy reasons, the professor never took notes about his formula, but taught it all to his bird. When the baddies can't make the bird talk though, they return to the professor, force him to get the formula out of the animal, then lock the professor, his niece (Allene Roberts, and cub reporter Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson), who just happened to stop by, in a secret room in the basement of the professor's house. Jimmy thinks up a plan to escape by setting off the fire alarm ... but all that only causes the sprinklers to go off and slowly filling up their room nobody has an idea about with water. Now only Superman (George Reeves) can help ... and he does, too, first freeing the professor and company, then, thanks to a tip from the parrot, arresting the enemy agents, at the same time saving them from the professor's explosive, which is still terribly unstable, and which goes off almost immediately after everybody's out of danger.

 


Rather bad episode with a premise that is simply too childish to really work - because let's face it, nobody would think it's a good idea to teach a top secret formula to a parrot to keep it under wraps, and nobody trying to develop tasty stamp glue develops an explosive more powerful than nitroglycerine instead.
