Synopsis
Debbie "the Duck" and Myron Feldman convince Ken Connell to don a costume and become a super-hero. Calling himself Star Brand, he stops a plane hijacking, but the general public still doubts his existence even after seeing him on television. Intent on ending the speculation, Ken flies to the moon and brings the Apollo 11 lunar landing module to the lawn of the White House as a gift to President Reagan. Star Brand becomes a nation-wide sensation. Debbie finds out she is pregnant.
