Toody For President?
12 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty good episode with decent humor, not the kind with a lot of laugh-out-loud material but the kind that keeps a steady smile on your face as you watch.

"Muldoon" is always the Brotherhood President and that's the way everyone likes it. He's good at his job, even though has become to become somewhat dictatorial. Muldoon, however, says he isn't going to run next time unless there is competition. The boys don't want Muldoon to lose so they convince Gunther Toody to run. Who would be stupid enough to vote for him? Even his wife "Lucille" laughs at the mere thought!

However, when Gunther gets a very aggressive campaign manager, "Sgt. Jim McBride" (Jimmy Little) the impossible looks like it could happen. (Little is very good in this episode.)

If you enjoy political ploys and shenanigans, you'll especially get some real enjoyment out of this one.
