Ann passes her initial audition to appear on the Talent Showcase. She learns from Mr. Handley, the producer, that for the final audition, she needs to prepare original comedy material, of which she was initially unaware. This causes a problem as Ann doesn't know any comedy writers who can write for her. Luckily, Donald knows that Jerry knows a comedy writer: his cousin, Ernie Bernie. Ernie's material doesn't end up being funny. So when Ann learns that Donald wrote a few comedy sketches when he was in college, Ann begs him to write a sketch for her. He reluctantly agrees. But he doesn't regret it after he's done as he believes the sketch is brilliant. Unfortunately, Ann doesn't think it's at all funny, her opinion which she corroborates with Judy. Ann doesn't know whether to tell Donald the truth, or go to the audition and in the process make a potential fool of herself. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


The comedic lyrics Donald performs for Ann at the beginning of this episode, which he says he wrote for a college musical comedy revue, were practically identical to lyrics Rob Petrie performed (and says he wrote) in an episode of '"Dick Van Dyke Show, The' (1961)'. Not a surprising incident considering both shows shared a number of the same writers and producers. See more »
