It’s a typical morning in town as we find Mel Blanc making some final tweaks on a penny weighing machine. Mr Snoop, the mailman, reads the mail, but he provides the chance for Mel to take his gal Betty out for a special date. All he needs to do is get Mr Colby to let her go out with him. Colby is in a particularly bad mood, but if Mel can help him out with a business client, he might let Mel take Betty out.
Mel gets a visit from the pompous potentate of his lodge, Mr Cushing, and when he learns that troublesome business client is also a member of the Zebras, he sees the answer to getting back into Colby’s good graces. Meanwhile, Colby has his own plans to butter up the big wig of the fish business. Will Betty be persuaded to think that Mel isn’t a wimp?
The swapping of secret lodge calls and signals confuse Colby and Betty. Will Mel’s intervening help, or hurt his chances with Mr Colby? If he does, it’ll only be by accident.
PS: In the opening scene, the statement of marriage between only a man and a woman is made, or rather implied by Mel’s joke. My apologies to those supporters of the current trend in trying to redefine marriage. It’s such a no brainer that every generation before this one understood, and any deviation from that natural law was fodder for jokes. It’s up to you though, decide what you want. Enjoy the joke, but where will you stand, as the one laughing, or the one being laughed at? Apolgies again for stepping on the unfunny politixcal soap box.
