The new vocal feature, the Kingsmen open with a song, Can’t You Take a Joke.
Molly has to help reign in Fibbers tongue as he crawls in through the window. He fell out after having a nightmare. She has surprises in store for him for his birthday, starting with breakfast plans. Gildersleeve pops in to spread cheer, and is oblivious to Fibbers insults.
More interruptions to the wheat cakes and sausages come in the form of the Old Timer. He tells it the way he hear’d it about bowl weevils. Bugle Nose McGee boasts about his Army days. Harlowe Wilcox pitches the sponsor in a bit of hard sales.
Stuffed after his breakfast, Fibber can hardly buckle his belt. He and Molly head out, and encounter Abigail Uppington. She has to explain her embarrassing limp today. Harlowe is next on their walk, but will he weave in another commercial? Somehow the McGee’s do it for him. Boomer is next on their brisk walk. Will he have tickets for the film, Pinocchio? Or just a lot of other scraps? The Kingsmen sing, Old MacDonald.
With all the sweetness and light coming Fibber’s way, he’s getting suspicious. Teeny meets up with the McGee’s but will she give into Fibbers desire for a fight? Will Fibber finally get his chance for an argument, when he breaks Gildey’s window?
Note: in this episode, Gildersleeve has both a wife, and a mother in law in his home. Later, on his own show he would be single, and never married.
