The search is on for the brown and white dog with stubby tail, and blue eyes, but nobody has seen such a critter. The police, the butcher, the man and woman on the street, not even Harlowe Wilcox. All he can do is pitch the sponsor product. Should Fibber form apossum… er… parsley… er… paisley… you know, one of them search parties. Alice Darling is on the street, doing some shopping before turning in from her night shift at the war plant. The Kingsmen sing, Lena from Palisina.
Mr Wellington, the manager at the Bijou sees lots of kids coming through his theater, but no dogs. What’s the latest feature? To be sure, it’s one that panders to the young crowd who are turned off by classics. As Fibber goes inside the drugstore to call the dog pound, Doc Gamble stops to tell Molly about a dog he had once.
