What has served to get Fibber’s temper up? Molly won’t rest until he tells her all about his trouble at the Elks club. Fibber complains that Doc Gamble was chosen to sing in the Barbershop Quartet over him. Wallace Wimple pops in to tell that he was selected to sing in the quartet. What does Sweetie Face think about his accomplishment? How did he manage to stop a stampeding horse? Billy Mills plays, Souvenir.
As Fibber continues his whining, Doc Gamble enters to talk about the upcoming musical convention. Turning on the charm, but with other motives in mind, Fibber offers to be Doc’s voice coach.
Harlow Wilcox arrives for the commercial, but Fibbr has nothing good to say about any of the other singers in the quartet. Milliscent Carstairs visits to claim she was just chased by a moose. The Kingsmen sing, a Barbershop Medley including: Sweet Kentucky Bay, and A Girl Like the One Who Married Dear Old Dad.
If the sponsor really wants to win the contest, why not let the Kingsmen enter? Simple, its for amateurs, not professionals. After taking Fibbers advice, Doc is in the other room, but he enters long enough to show how his voice is taking a turn for the worst. Will Fibber get his big chance to sing? Mayor Latrivia enters to share about his past experience in a glee club, and some work on a dude ranch. His word choice is just the right thing to have the McGee’s putting him into one of his famous slowburns.
Back to the good Doctor, his voice has declined to the point of not being able to sing. Fibber pretends humility to drop everything to fill in. Doc makes a remarkable recovery, after Fibber races out on his mission. How is that possible? Why was he faking his voice trouble?
PS: In real life, Arthur Q Bryan wanted his claim to fame to be as a tenor. Instead, he got involved in voice acting. He can still be heard singing in episodes of the Great Gildersleeve, in episodes featuring the Jolly Boys Club.
