The man who made the Bee, public insect #1 is introduced. Jack is in New York, and jokes about both his success at playing the Bee last week, and the swanky hotel that the cast is staying in, the Waldorf Astoria. The cast joke about the shows in town. Phil Harris is absent to finish making a movie, so Abe Lyman is the bandleader who gives Jack a hard time. Is Jack tough enough to handle him? Abe plays, Slumming on Park Avenue.
enny Baker jokes about the sights that he has seen in New York. Will Kenny have any trouble handling tough guy Abe Lyman? Kenny sings, When the Poppies Bloom I’ll Remember You.
Mary flubs a joke, but Jack makes it sound good. Jack wants to have Stuart Canin on the show to see if he’s really a kid, or an adult in disguise. But first, a visit from Schlepperman, who tells about his new hotel. Abe and his band play a swinging tune.
More jokes about kids who play the Bee are included. Stuart arrives, and dishes it right back when Jack gets a little mean with his jokes.
