Lum and Abner – Almost All Of Abners Merchandise Is Gone. (350311) Horlicks: Invented by William Horlick, over 50 years ago (1880’s) to serve a need for sick people who are convelescing from illness.
In Pine Ridge, Abner is running out of merchandise after operating his business by swapping for livestock, and other things. Lum is all too glad to see his inventory disappear, since Abner has been driving down the grocery business for Lum.
What does Abner hope to do with all those animals? He thinks he can resell them, but that is yet to be seen. And what about the costs of keeping them in the meantime?
Turning to other daily topics in Pine Ridge, Abner gets a call from Sister Simpson. The constable is needed, and Abner is the man. He has to lay down the law concerning somebody who has let their farm animals roam through town. Cedric has a report to let Abner know whose animals they are. Can you guess?
Horlick drama: A housewife tells her tired out husband how to keep his energy up through the afternoon, while controlling his weight. Horlick malted milk tablets to the rescue! Holy cow! I need to see if I can get a few of those to try out.
Maybe we should start a campaign to the still existing Horlick company to resurrect this age old product. I bet it would beat the pants off stuff like SlimFast, Jenny Craig, and all the rest. Hey, maybe they would sponsor the podcast. Thanks to Lum and Abner, I’m already running commercials for them. Just a though.
