Ben Withers talks with Lum and Abner to hear about their encounter with the wild man from Borneo. Caleb Wehandt isn’t taking Cedric’s new job very well. Should they lock Squire in jail to protect him from Cedric’s irate dad?
The discussion of carnivals inspires Ben to rant on carnivals past, and an incident on a Ferris Wheel, and marriage proposals. Squire enters, and already has a solution to the irate Caleb. He hired him for a circus side show act.
What next? Squire still needs a trapeze act. Will he be able to convince Lum to be so high in the air? Will he be able to convince Lum to even wear the vcostume? Maybe Abner will get roped into being the circus lion tamer.
