Storyline

Boy genius Dilly Watkins improves life on the Douglas' farm with his new electronic inventions. Besides the barn door opener that works when Eleanor moos at it, there's the television camera that sends pictures of the cow to the bedroom set. Oliver doesn't realize the camera is transmitting to all the sets in the valley, turning him into an overnight Nielsen sensation. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>
