Charlie's in his Superman costume, watching a documentary about the classic Superfriends cartoon series of the late 60's.

He sits rapt, beaming, while various experts of the comic world laud Superman. The greatest of the great.

Then the focus of the program moves to Batman and Robin. The commentators all agree that while Superman reigns supreme, "Batman and Robin have better costumes." Charlie is shocked. He looks down at his get-up, exclaiming,

"That's impossible! No one could ever beat me."

Upon further contemplation, he decides he'd make a better impression completely dressed. Hopping off the chair, he declares, "I better go put on my boots."

He walks out of the room, muttering to himself. "Great Scot! Where are my boots? Batman? Impossible!"
