Synopsis for "The Superman Super-Spectacular!"
When Our American Heroes, a TV show honoring great Americans by reuniting them on air with their old acquaintances, honors Superman in such fashion, he is perplexed as to how he will find someone to portray Clark Kent and thus throw suspicion off his double identity. President John F. Kennedy agrees to do so, and, in a Clark Kent mask and make-up, shakes Superman's hand on the air. Later, Superman tells JFK that he knows his secret identity is safe with him.

Synopsis for "The Untold Story of Argo City!"
When Supergirl has dreams that her parents, Zor-El and Allura, are alive, she receives confirmation from the telepathic Comet that they are extant somewhere "in the Zone" and trying to communicate with her. Supergirl goes to the Phantom Zone for a time and tries to learn the truth from the mad priest Jer-Em, who is repentant and tries to tell her. But the other Zoners block his transmissions with mental interference. Finally, at the Fortress of Solitude, Supergirl uses Superman's chronoscope to learn the truth about Argo City. Zor-El had discovered another
"zone" on a different wavelength from the Phantom Zone. Calling it the Survival Zone, he attempted to send himself and Allura there with a ray treatment, but apparently failed. However, after they send Kara to Earth in a rocket and the people of Argo City are dying from Kryptonite exposure, Zor-El and Allura fade into the Survival Zone by a delayed reaction of the ray.
Overjoyed, Supergirl pledges to free her parents from the Survival Zone.
