In the first of three Adventures of Superman episodes directed by series star George Reeves, reporters Lois (Noel Neill) and Jimmy (Jack Larson) are enjoying a working vacation in a tranquil Mexican village. When Lois sends back a dispatch to the "Daily Planet" about a local burro named Carmelita who apparently has the ability to read minds, Clark Kent (George Reeves) is ordered South of the Border to investigate. It's a darn good thing that Clark and Superman are one and the same, especially when a pair of crooks (Mauritz Hugo, Ken Mayer) hijack the burro to help them rob and bank, and then leave the helpless Lois and Jimmy in one of the series' inevitable "death traps."
