Synopsis for "Green Arrow in King Arthur's Court!"
While Roy Harper is busy doing a bibliography on the works of Mark Twain, Oliver Queen is studying an record book of environmental events including earthquakes and eclipses. Being called to stop a robbery in a castle, the two archers are knocked out by the crooks knock-out gas.
When they awaken they find themselves in Medieval times in the castle of King Arthur. Proving themselves as worthy by creating an "eclipse" (with dynamite arrows) to prove Merlin of their "magic", the two archers help fend off an attack by Morgan Le Fay and her army. Afterward they are tricked into drinking a knock out potion by a jealous Merlin.
Waking up in their own time, the two archers find that the crooks were knocked out by their own gas and turn them over to the police. Later, looking over their records, Roy comments how their adventure was almost like the Mark Twain story "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" and Oliver finds records of an eclipse on the apparent day they were in the past, and both are left to wonder if what they experienced really happened or if it was just a dream.

Synopsis for "The Adventures of Aquaboy"
During a storm out at sea, Aquaman rescues an old man who is swept off his boat, taking him to safety on an island he finds out that the old man is blind who spent the past 12 years on a deserted island where he collected a fortune in oysters. When he finally gained enough to pay for an operation to restore his sight tragedy struck and the accidentally fell overboard. When Aquaman offers to help recover them, the old man doesn't believe him thinking Aquaman a thief and that his abilities can't possibly be real.
Suddenly, Aquaman recognizes the old man as somebody he met years before when he was Aquaboy. He explains how years ago with the help of some whales, Aquaman prevented the old man's ship from sinking and back then, as now, he didn't believe in any of Aquaman's super-feats. Aquaman attempts to convince the old man by telling him stories of his youth, like when he plugged a hole in a dyke with his body, or when he helped archaeologists find sunken roman treasure. None of the tales convinces the old man that Aquaman is on the level.
It finally takes a seaquake knocking the old man back into the water and Aquaman summoning a whale to safe his life does the old man finally believe Aquaman is telling the truth. Telling Aquaman where the pearls were dropped, the hero recovers them and returns them to the old man who thanks Aquaman for his help.
