"It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Super Dude?" 

Super Dude is a puppet character who has a difficult time relating to the "human" world. His helpfulness is often misguided, as he forgets that as humans we are limited in our own abilities, and that what the world says, and what God says are often different.

Super Dude stops a young boy from shaving his head, but then he thinks he may have made a mistake

Brad: No, I think I’m okay. But whad’ya do that for? Wait a minute, aren’t you...

SD: (in a booming voice) Yes, it is I, Super Dude, to the rescue!

Brad: I thought so. I’ve heard about you. What do you think you were doing, tackling me like that?

SD: I was saving you from making a terrible mistake!

Brad: What mistake?

SD: You were going to shave your head.

Brad: How did you know that?

SD: (sarcastically) Are you kidding?

Brad: Oh yeah, super hearing and vision and all that stuff, right?

Brad: For what?

Brad: But I didn’t want you to stop me.

SD: Maybe not, but you needed me to stop you.

Brad: No, I didn’t.
