A coming-of-age classic
10 February 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I think I rented this once, but I remember first seeing it on The Wonderful World of Disney in the 70s. At the time, I wasn't driving age, but I still got alot of the humor. Even if it is dated clothes wise, it is still a very funny episode that should be made more available to the public, i.e. Disney Channel!
