Randolf and Judy shop for a birthday gift for their dad. Randolf is thinking of sporting goods, but Judy is distracted by jewelry and Laungerie. They end up finding an expensive gift that is beyond their budget, so it gets charged to dad’s own charge account. Mom isn’t happy and demands an account of their shopping spree. Feeling regret, Judy plans to give the gift that money can’t buy. She plans a full day of spending time with dear old dad.
Of course, to make the day of fun happen, the kids need to have dad take time off from work. There’s only one thing to do, Judy goes to the important businessman to beg him for the day off for dad. Since dad’s day is shot, he gets to spend his day relaxing… at the amusement park? To sweeten the deal, Judy invites the old businessman so dad has someone to keep him company.
Dad can only see disaster for his future, but the fun is only startng as the two middle aged men invade the wierd world of the 1940’s teen ager. I think that dad might be popping whole rolls of the shows sponsor’s product, Tums. The crazy day has some unexpected outcomes, and the old fuddy duddies rediscover the spark of youth.
Dad is played by John Brown, a fixzture of countless radio shows including Fred Allen, Damen Runyon Theater, Mel Blanc Show, My Friend Irma, and so many more. Judy is played by Louise Erikson, Though an actual teen ager for most of the run of this show, she played teenagers all through the years to come, even as late as the cartoons of the 1960’s. Her role as a teenager named Judy was reprised as Judy Jetson.
