The announcer is Don Wilson. The sponsor is Jello. As the show opens, it is mentioned that this is a leap year. Mary is missing due to laryngitis. Don and Kenny talk about the missing Jack. Where could he be? What? A stingy joke directed at Don Wilson? With Jack gone, I suppose someone had to be cheap.

As he and Jack discuss the case. Johny plays, Music Goes Round and Round.
Finally, Jack and Johnny get their day before the judge. Don gets back at Jack with a stingy joke of his own. With the testimonies of the cast, things may not be looking well for our defendants, but at least the jokes keep coming. Johnny’s band plays, and wraps up the show. Mary makes a sneak appearance at the tail end of the show.
