Carmine writes and records a dance song called "Do The Hotfoot". A TV star "Bobby Botts" likes what he hears but advises Carmine to change the title to the self-promoting "Do The Carmine". After the change,he performs the song on the star's show. The show is seen and the record heard by self- proclaimed censor "Dr. Knibble". He basically accuses Carmine of indecency,by what he "thinks" he hears when the recording is played backwards. Is Carmine's career over before it's begun? Written by happipuppi13
