Synopsis for Superbaby: "Superbaby's Lost World"

Superbaby gets separated from his parents while visiting an amusement park. He is then found by a pair of jewelry thieves named Connie and Hyde who decide to use the baby as a cover so they can pose as a normal family. They soon discover that the baby has powers that they are unable to handle. Superbaby capsizes their boat while going on a river ride. He then flies the pair of thieves to the top of a makeshift volcano so they can dry off. He eventually leaves the pair hanging on tree branches where they are soon discovered by police. The thieves are more than happy to be taken into custody rather than dealing with anymore adventures with Superbaby. The baby is eventually found by the Kents and they go home while the thieves are carried off in a paddy wagon.
