Synopsis for "Beware the Mad Dog of Steel!"

Superboy and Krypto find a Kryptonian space capsule on the ocean's floor. The capsule contains several vials of germ culture, one of which pops open and douses Krypto with rabies germs. Krypto goes mad and bites Superboy, giving him the disease, which proves fatal to humans within 24 hours. But Superboy has his dog break another of the vials, which is an antidote to the rabies germs, and both he and Krypto recover.
