Featuring the Great Rhythms of Freddie Rich, and swinging singing of Connie Haines. Lou comes in with a song in his throat, but Bud wishes it would just stay in there.
Lou compares himself to Bing Crosby to prove his ability. Using the same example, Bud tries to disprove his ability, along with some good word plays that put a twist on their famous baseball sketch, and getting confused over Carmen Miranda, and bars,. They even manage to drag Freddie Rich, at least his reputation into the fun.
After the commercial Freddie Rich plays, Don’t Fence Me In.
Lou persists in his singing efforts. He talks about his old days in the fish market quartet. Bud begins to show signs of caving in. He takes Lou to Tin Pan Alley to get Lou a songwriter. Mel is the janitor, Connie Haines is the secretary, and Mr Kitzel is the head songwriter. Lou and Kitzel joke around using song titles.
Connie sings, I’m Making Believe.
Back in the music studio, Lou announces his new musical program. With back up by Freddie Rich, and the ushers securely locking the doors. Before he can make good on his threat though, Bud and Lou share a few more musically related jokes.
Bud stalls by bringing out Verna Felton as a voice coach to give Lou a lesson. She adds to the comedy of musical jargon.
Next up to tease Lou is his own little brother, Sebastian. Sebastian has to tell about the money he squandered on piano lessons, and a little about his girlfriend. He’s such a bad boy.
