4. The Russian Exchange Student - Ray Walston guest stars as
scientist creating a new source of fuel that runs into sabotage from the
oil companies. Who would ever believe an oil company could be crooked? Ray
is best remembered for the movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont
High" as Mr. Hand. You have to give him credit, he at least
tried to straighten out Sean Penn. Ray also
starred in the TV series My
Favorite Martian, and in Picket Fences as a cranky old judge.
5. Countdown to Nowhere - Doug Barr guest stars as a bad guy
who kidnaps Lana Lang. This was actually supposed to be the pilot episode
from what I've read. It shows us the first appearance of Superboy to the
world. I am a little curious as to why no mention was ever made of
Superboy existing before his college days, while he lived in Smallville.
This is the only time in the first season you'll hear the famous line,
" I stand for truth, justice, and the American way." He says it
at the Kennedy Space Center about the same time
the Space Shuttle is to take off.

collector who kidnaps Lana. Lana gets into trouble a lot in the first
season. Garrett was a famous teen idol back in the 70's.

Movie's Perry White none other than legendary actor Jackie
Cooper. Superboy is accused and arrested for crimes he did not commit
8. The Fixer - Guest stars James Hampton from the classic TV series F-Troop
and the movie Teen Wolf, Globetrotter Curly Neal, and Michael Landon Jr. This

and who better to get than Globetrotter legend Curly
Neal for a cameo and James Hampton to star as a coach who had a couple of
years earlier starred in Teen
Wolf, a movie that revolved around basketball as well. (Strange but I

Impossible's Greg Morris are there to save the day.
12. Kryptonite Kills - The first
appearance of Kryptonite on Superboy and guess who has it, Lex Luthor.
Scott Wells stars as Lex Luthor along with guest star George Chakiris.
