At Kraemer’s drugstore, the annual contest to guess the number of beans in a fish bowl is underway. Fibber is determined to win the prize of a radio by buying an identical fishbowl, and enough beans to fill it. Now all that remains is to count the beans as he puts them in. Millicent comes over to tell about her husband, and his interests. The visit won’t distract Fibbers counting, will it?
Billy Mills and the orchestra play, Let It Snow. Doc Gamble visits to match wits and cast doubt ohn Fibbers technique.
Teeny pops in to distract the counting process as she shares about her Christmas presents. The Kingsmen sing, Doctor Lawyer or Indian Chief.
Mayor Latrivia visits to observe Fibbers scientific method of counting beans. He still manages to get himself flustered over Fibber misunderstanding the help offered. Will Fibber end up as the big winner?
PS: Fibber’s story with Teeny about Gus the caterpillar, or is that cattle piddle, actually makes it past the censors The words may sound silly, butif you’re in doubt, look it up in the dictionary.
