The cast arrives, mostly it’s just Don Wilson, Dennis Day, and Bob Crosby. Dennis jokes about being a crusty, but seasick pirate. He sings, Because You’re Mine.
Before Jack can wind up, and go into the day’s play, Bob Crosby has a special request. How can Jack help out with brother Bing’s latest business venture? Parts are assigned, and Mel Blanc joins the all male cast today. Jack and Don are gold prospectors in old Mexico. Will they find the guide they need in an old timer played by Dennis? Four musical Mexicans enter, otherwise known as the Sportsmen. They sing a sponsor version of, Tampico.
Banditos roll in, but will Sy back down from Irish Gallager? Si. What about his sister… Sue? Well, its really Raqel. Not to be disappointed, his little brother enters with a magic act to pick up the slack… alright? Si. In fact, Jack can hardly finish the routine without laughing. Back to the play, greed makes a move, and the gold remains an elusive dream as gunplay brings a comic tragic end to the spoof.
Note: The sponsor claims that smoking enjoyment is just a matter of taste. Hmm… maybe there’s something to that. That’s probably why I enjoy smoking the way I do… the taste. I can’t stand the test, so therefore, I can’t enjoy smoking. At any rate, remember that commercials are left in for entertainment, and historical purposes only. Don’t smoke. It’s bad for you.
PS: At hearing Jack’s nickname in the play, the Irish Dennis Day exclaims, “Oy vey!” Of course a jab at the fact that Jack is actually Jewish, and Dennis has the Irish roots.
