Fibber frantically searches for his white envelop with his shopping money in it. As Molly tries to keep him calm, Abigail Uppin\gton visits with an opening joke that gives a nod to Red Skelton, and a bit that Ozzie Nelson often does on that show. Abigail gets teased over her job as Santa Claus from last week, and about a moment of young love. Billy Mills plays a little traveling music as the McGee’s head downtown.
They visit a fortune teller to see if the madam can offer any hints as to where the missing money may be. The fortune teller is voiced by Abigail Uppington, but she can’t do more than answer 3 questions at a time. Harlowe Wilcox has his own beef with the fortune teller, which we learn about during his word for the sponsor product.
Since Gale Gordon, who plays Mayor Latrivia, has left for military service, the show tries out a new character. A new neighbor from down the street gives the McGee’s a grilling to be sure they’re doing their part to fully support the war effort. Which department of government is the authoritative sounding man a part of? The Old Timer also pops in to tell about going away for a few weeks, and a train he used to own. The Kingsmen sing, White Christmas.
Wallace Wimple has a word about the Christas poetry he writes, and his wifeSweetie Face. He’s also going away for a few weeks. Finally Fibber seems to close in on his missing money. Will he be able to get in his shopping?
Note: Did you notice how both the Old Timer and Wallace Wimple are going away… for the same length of time? For those who never pay attention to the closing credits, they are both voiced by Bill Thompson who is taking time off. He would eventually also go into the military as a Naval Sea Bee.
