Bunny Bingleton, and Arthur Lake, better known as Blondie and Dagwood are the guests on tonights show.
. Lou tells Bud about his trip to the Naval Base, and how he helped to launch a submarine. Bud and Lou talk about saving paper for the war effort, which sets the theme for the show. Ken Niles even jokes around about the paper drive, and about his radio wife, Verna Felton. She gets teased about her looks.
Dagwood and Blondie make an appearance to support the paper drive, while Lou blows his line. As Bud and Lou get ready to go over the play, they discover that Dagwood took their script for the drive. The two have to go through town to find the missing script.
Along the way, they talk to Blondie’s son Alexander. Lou talks with a traffic cop about traffic lights, and rules for crossing the street. If he’s lucky, he just might make it across.
The script is gone, but Blondie, Dagwood, and Alexander do their part to help the show. Their new play begins right after Connie Haines sings, Take It Easy.
Lou and Dagwood argue over who will be in the lead role, then Dagwood quotes a poem, the Raven. The play is a version of the Seven Dwarves. It’s the excuse they need for jokes about apples, Kissing, dogs, trees, horses, and more.
PS: Hey, what do you know, this show aired on my dad’s fifth birthday.
