The big build up from last week comes to a head, and Bob Hopes arrival is announced. The mystery of why the big time comedian is visiting will be explained. Lum thinks it has to do something with him, and his important accomplishments. Might it involve a big movie deal?
As Bob’s arrival grows closer, egos inflate. Dick Mallard is yet another publicit manager who arrives to lay out the red carpet, and confuse Lum and Abner with press jargon and slang.
The questions from the press agent plays right into Lum’s ego. But wait! The agent claims that it’s Cedric who is the focus of the visit.
Note Franklin Graham is once again the guest voice actor portraying the press agent.
