Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer appeared as a fictional character in Superman cartoons produced by Max Fleischer in the 1940's. I didn't remember that when I had some stuff related to Superman stuff on this blog before.
The character of "Jimmy Olsen" did not appear in those cartoons ( he came from the radio series and was not important in the comics until later on ) and the Alfalfa guy could be regarded as a different kid character who was used in place of him. The Alfalfa guy only appeared in a couple of the cartoons as an incidental character and never became important in the series.

So that this character, who may be seen as having been in place of Jimmy Olsen, is not really much like him at all.
