Note: not the right date for this show, but one like it, with a similar script, may have appeared here. This episode is likely from a season a couple years in the future.
Both Bill Davis, and Gale Gordon were serving in the military at this time, and wouldn’t return to the show for at least a year. Another hint is the film, Song of the South, where the Kingsmen’s song comes from didn’t come out until November 1946.
Molly has put up with a lot with her husband, but for once his pet project is in being overly energetic. Restlessneess has seen to it that long neglected repairs and projects are completed.

As the day wears on, Molly is exhausted. Mayor Latrivia enters to learn of Fibbers enthusiasm. Will the book be a pick me up for the tired mayor, or the e Elks club meeting?
