After Bud sees a car at the bottom of the bay with bullet holes int he windshield, he asks his father to investigate. But Porter is used to Bud's exaggerated stories and vivid imagination and declares he doesn't have time. Before leaving for a meeting, he orders his sons to stay away from the car, but the boys soon find a pretext on which to once again go to that section of the bay. Unfortunately, they had already questioned several people about the car and one of them is responsible for that car. The boy soon learn a lesson in why it's very important to obey your parents! Written by
Sandy (Luke Halpin), Bud (Tommy Norden), and Flipper find a sunken red car, while playing underwater. Bud notices bullet holes in the car's windshield. Naturally, the boys want to investigate, but Ricks (Brian Kelly) warns them to stay away from the vehicle. Sandy tries to convince his father to allow him to investigate by noting that he's getting "older now" and should be helping his father more - starting with an investigation of the sunken car. Ricks thinks neither of the boys is, "too big to put over my knee." Later, the kids are bored, and decide to dive for shells; conveniently, they decide to dive near the derelict car, and are exposed to unexpected danger
After an explosive climax, Ricks declares, "Neither of you are too big to put over my knee! Now, who's first?" That doesn't happen, of course; Sandy, in particular, is too old to be spanked by his father. Their consequence is a lesson. Guest star Mart Hulswit (as Johnny) helps provide the lesson, after getting mixed up with punk Robert Reilly (as Dick).
**** The Red Hot Car (9/26/64) Leon Benson ~ Brian Kelly, Luke Halpin, Tommy Norden
