Announcer, Truman Bradley introduces that new, young comedian Red Skelton. The two talk about the new portable radios that you can actually carry around with you. Amazing, now why would anyone ever want to carry around music with them? Do you think it will ever catch on? Says the podcaster with a knowing grin.
Also a little about Red’s old vaudeville days. It seems he got the bird a lot. Hmm…
Ozzie enters to pitch in with tales of his old vaudeville days. Harriot gives Red a hard time about the show he was just part of with a host of other Hollywood stars in an old vaudeville theater building as a fund raiser for the war effort.
Ozzie sings the melancholie tune of the day, There’ll be Bluebirds Over the White Cliffs of Dover.
Red briefly takes time to recognize a RAF pilot in the audience, then continues by trying to get Ozzie and Harriot to go out to dinner with him. It’s all to lead into a series of sketches about restaurants, and the people who are in them, starting with Willie Lumplump giving a waiter a hard time. Not to mention the vending machines.
Next, Clem Kadiddlehopper is on the way to work at his hamburger stand. His gal Daisy Doo is there to help him out. They talk about drive ins, and having mice. Ozzie is a customer who gets the works and leaves withDaisy. Followed by who else? Junior the Mean little Kid, and his mom Harriot. Mom tries to teach him manners by using a napkin, and taking off his coat. Junior spreads the wealth and shares his company with the other restaurant patrons. He even helps a waiter with his heavy load.
Ozzie sings, Yess Sir.
The restaurant scenes aren’t quite over yet when Red is a guy who tries to hit on the gals, just because his dad owns the place. Wonderful Smith is the cook. He jokes around about the food on the menu, and Red tries to get a date with Harriot.
