Synopsis for "The Six Jimmy Olsens"
Seeing a classified ad in the paper from a "Mr. X" asking Jimmy Olsen to help solve a riddle, Jimmy goes to the meeting place and is shocked to find that five other boys named Jimmy Olsen had answered the classified ad as well. The six Jimmy Olsen's agree to work together, and give each other nicknames (Tubby Jimmy, Slim Jimmy, Tall Jimmy, Short Jimmy, Goggle Jimmy, and Cub Jimmy) They find Mr. X's riddle: a sealed trunk which cannot be opened by force for risk of destroying it's contents, Mr. X advises the boys that if they open the trunk they can keep the it's contents.
Jimmy decides the best way to find out is to get Superman to use his x-ray vision to peer into the chest. However, when Superman doesn't answer the summons from Jimmy's wrist watch, Jimmy sends out the other Jimmy Olsens to try and locate Superman and bring him back to his apartment. The boys search high and low, until Short Jimmy finds Superman, who rounds up all the other Jimmy's and takes them back to Jimmy Olsen's home. When Superman probes the trunk with his x-ray vision, he tells the boys that the trunk was empty. The other Jimmy's depart, and Jimmy himself tosses away the trunk in disgust. "Mr. X" really a crook, takes the trunk to a diamond dealer, because the trunk was made out of a special carbon material that would slowly convert into diamond once exposed to Superman's x-ray vision.
Superman, having deduced this arrives and arrests the crook and exposing his plan. Later, Superman gathers all the Jimmy Olsen's together one more time so that they can celebrate Jimmy for being unselfish and allowing the other boys help him on his most recent adventure.

Jimmy is the official fund collector for a charity, and is charged with handing over the raised funds to Superman. As Jimmy travels town collecting the charity money from the various drop boxes, Jimmy attracts the attention of a crook who takes note that Jimmy calls Superman for each collection with his signal watch.
Following Jimmy around town, he waits until Jimmy washes up for lunch and takes his watch and deactivates the Superman signal inside. The crooks then proceed to steal the money whenever Jimmy goes to collect it, and Jimmy soon learns that his signal watch has been tampered with, and soon after all the charity money has been stolen, the crooks kidnap Jimmy. Allowing Jimmy to use his signal watch, the crooks have a chunk of Kryptonite that they can use on the Man of Steel when he comes to Jimmy's rescue. However, Jimmy thinks ahead and uses his signal watch to transmit a morse code to Superman warning him of the danger. The Man of Steel then builds giant tongs to grab the Kryptonite from a safe distance and hurl it away.
After Superman easily captures the crooks and returns the stolen money to the charity.

Synopsis for "Jimmy Olsen's Super Illusions"
When Jimmy accidentally takes a picture of Clark Kent changing into Superman one night, the Man of Steel has to come up with a way of tricking Jimmy into not believing that Clark Kent is Superman. Using his super-powers to stage a series of "illusions" to trick Jimmy (like making 10 eggs appear when Jimmy is cooking breakfast, turning a house upside-down and other tricks) Superman manages to convince Jimmy that it was all a dream, giving the Man of Steel time to switch the film of Jimmy taking Superman's picture, once more preserving his secret identity.
