Storyline

Jerry hosts the annual PBS pledge drive and asks George to get some of the Yankee players to appear on the show. George comes through and gets Danny Tartabul to appear on the show. Kramer discovers that Jerry has been getting some birthday cards from his Nana with money inside. He cashes them in and suddenly Nana's bank account is overdrawn. Nana then goes missing. Jerry gets in trouble with Elaine's friends (one of whom has an unusually high voice) when Elaine starts a rumor that the wife was hitting on Jerry. George thinks everybody is giving him the finger and decides to follow one offender while driving Danny Tartabul to the pledge drive. Kramer volunteers to become a phone-answerer for PBS and Elaine discovers that Mr. Pitt eats his candy bars with a knife and fork, starting an unusual trend. Written by halo1k

"why don't you just drop dead?"

Season 6, Episode 3, "The Pledge Drive"

After two very weak episodes, season 6 finally started to find its footing with this solid and hilarious episode.

While it's still not on par with some of the more brilliant moments of seasons 4 and 5, "The Pledge Drive" has enough wonderful moments to make for a minor classic. Elaine's boss, Mr. Pitt, is finally getting his dues, and proves himself as one of the best elements of the season, and he provides one of its most memorable moments. The possibilities in George's new job are also being explored, finally, including a cameo from Danny Tartabull as himself. Finally, the wonderful Billye Ree Wallace makes her first appearance as Jerry's grandmother for some of the episode's funniest moments.
