For a change, Jack introduces Don. It’s a special day to honor Don for his 20 years on the show. Bob Crosby and Dennis Day pop in with a couple wisecracks as a diversion. Dennis sings, That’s Amore.
Jack tries to announce his special sketch of Don’s life, but Rochester phones in with troubles at home. The play begins in Denver, Colorado and the blessed event of Don’s birth. Jokes about Don’s eating habits and rapidly growing size abound. We folow Don to his college years, and his preparation for a radio career. Catch a glimpse as Mr Willowby, played by Frank Nelson, is the case behind introdcing Don to Jack.
Note: Dennis refers to being an incubator baby. The term was the catch phrase for what we call a preemie today. Premature babies were undersized and where placed in the incubator to continue to grow and get stronger. However, at the age Dennis claimss to be, he would be several years old. Well past the need for incubators. In real life, Dennis is a lot older than that.
