Last week, while on a vacation at the beach, red-haired brothers Michael McGreevey and Billy Mumy (as Arthur and Petey Loomis) found a seal. The lads christened their critter "Sammy", and spent summertime frolicking with the sandy sea lion. When it was time to go home, the boys began to suffer separation anxiety. Of course, the young brothers took "Sammy" back to "Disneyland" er, "Gatesville". At home, they try to hide "the Way-out Seal" from adults, but, of course hijacks ensue!
McGreevey and Mumy are marvelously cast, and make it fun to watch. You should probably be very young (or have a childlike mind) to fully enjoy writer/director Norman Tokar's "Sammy - The Way-out Seal" - a colorful string of routine, deliberately staged scenes. The second half prominently features veteran Jack Carson (as Harold Sylvester), in his last appearance (died January 1963). Robert Culp & Patricia Barry play the parents, and Ann Gillian (as "Rocky" Sylvester) helps round out the cast.
**** Sammy - The Way-out Seal, pt 2 (11/4/62) Norman Tokar ~ Michael McGreevey, Bill Mumy, Jack Carson
