Paul Lynde
8 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Paul Lynde absolutely steals this episode as the father of one of Gidget's friends who is obsessed with avoiding "the Valley" as he drives around 1966 Los Angeles in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to buy a car for his daughter. The plot is totally incidental though as it is just a gimmick to allow Paul Lynde to show off that faintly sneering delivery of his which never fails to make me laugh. At the end of the show his character "takes a lesson" from Gidget's father who can be classy even in his pajamas. This after all of us in the audience have "taken a lesson" from Mr. Lynde in the art of making the most mundane material very, very funny.

I have not seen all the episodes of the Gidget series but of the ones I have seen this is by far the funniest. Tune in and "take a lesson" in the difference between a comic (someone who says funny things) and a comedian (someone who says things funny) from one of the finest comedians ever to perform, Mr. Paul Lynde.
