Lum and Abner – Circus Will Open Saturday. 350319Horlicks: There’s nothing like Horlicks for weight control. Hey, I wonder. If they could have an arm wrestling match, who would win: Horlicks, or SlimFast?
In Pine Ridge, Squire has been busy arranging the circus side show. Lum is afraid he’s going to be in trouble with the way Squire stretches the truth. At the end of last episode, it was revealed that Cedric had been playing the part of the Wild Man from Borneo.
Lum and Abner talk about some of the aftermath of it. Lum mentions some residual complaints over the recent flashlight giveaway, and some folks who still haven’t recieved them yet. He sends his apologies through the party line.
Side note to young listeners: the party line was the 1930’s version of the Internet, and email.
Squire pops in to put some final touches on the circus preparations. He wants Lum to be a trapese artist. Abner gets talked into being the lion tamer.
Horlick Letter: A mom writes in who had a baby who was becoming puny. After going on a diet of Horlicks, she’s now just a big baby. Hey, that didn’t sound right. She’s big and strong as all the other babies.
