Alan Oppenheimer and Liam Dunn
4 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Art for Mom's Sake" has Shirley joining an art class where the instructor (Alan Oppenheimer) inexplicably raves about her work. Her children know all too well that their mother's paintings are none too good, and desperately try to prevent her feelings from being hurt. Alan Oppenheimer had previously appeared in both "Old Scrapmouth" and "Forgive Us Our Debits," while the always funny Liam Dunn returned in "Pin It on Danny." Bringing up the rear was Gordon Jump, in the last of his seven appearances, including the pilot. The featured song is Tony Romeo's "I'll Never Get Over You," from the LP BULLETIN BOARD (previously heard in "Hate Thy Neighbor").
