A little mouse has taken up residence in the Jot ‘Em Down store. Lum sees it as a pest, but Abner has claimed the critter as a pet, and named him Clyde. Can Lum call in an exterminator without making Abner suspicious?
Sending Abner off on an errand, the exterminator enters to talk to Lum about a few details of his business. Will Lum be impressed by the trivial adventures of the pest control trade? Doctor Roller, the pest controller is bent on hunting termites, and a host of other vicious critters, and is taken aback to learn that his sole prey is a single mouse. Isn’t there something more elaborate for him to hunt?
Lum plays up the terrors of the mouse to make it seem worth the exterminators while, but can he still keep the matter secret from Abner?
PS: Listeners may recognize the voice of Doctor Roller as, Howard McNear. The same guy who portrays Doc Adams on the Gunsmoke radio sow, and Floyd the barber on television’s Andy Griffith shw.
