During the run of hit show The Adventures of Superman actor George Reeves guest star on a hit tv show I Love Lucy. The show was in it’s sixth season and this was the only show Reeves could guest star.
The episode Lucy and Superman has alot of great Moments and connections! Doris Singleton who played Caroline Appleby made her acting debut on The Adventures of Superman!
The fans of 1966 Batman will recognize Aunt Harriet, Madge Blake as a woman looking at the Apartment and freak out as she see Lucy who’s dress as Superman!
As for the guy who played Charlie Appleby, if you listen to his voice real carefully you’ll recognize him as the actor who play George Jetson on the classic animated show The Jetsons!
In real life Lucy had a fear of birds! In this episode she seem to overcome her fear and work with them!
Back to George Reeves, he was willing to come on a show if he could do a couple of stunts, and he did like jumping into a living room from a kitchen and moving the piano! Reeves did had the best line at the end, “Ricky you mean to tell me that you’ve been married to her for 15 years?” Ricky shout,“Yes 15 years!” And Reeves grin,“And they call me Superman!” You can find this classic episode on Hulu, I Love Lucy season 6.
Now here’s a fun little poll, I read somewhere that Lucy is the first ‘Supergirl’ on TV, since she was wearing the outfit and dress like Superman. Is Lucy really the first Supergirl?
- Yes, Since she’s the first woman on screen to wear the costume!
- No, That honor goes to Helen Slater!
