The battle of the sexes
5 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Hel-l-l-p" is a typical battle of the sexes, as Shirley and Laurie decide to go camping in the wilderness, closely followed by Reuben, Keith, and Danny, who naturally believe those 'helpless females' can't possibly survive without male egos nearby. It's no surprise who encounters poison oak and other natural obstacles, neglecting to bring along necessities such as food, can openers, or sleeping bags (the women had a ball). Danny claims he thought they were taking him to a drive-in movie! The best gag comes last, courtesy a little girl scout (Cindy Henderson), Reuben sheepishly admitting, "we've come to rescue you!" A rare instance where the episode begins with the featured song, "I'm on My Way Back Home" (the same footage taken from "Days of Acne and Roses"), composed by Jack Keller and Bobby Hart, from the LP SOUND MAGAZINE.
