This was a "cute" episode, the kind of warm-feeling one that marked
programs like this and "Leave It To Beaver." Everyone in the show is
nice, polite, and funny. When the show is over, you have a smile on
your face. To many, this type of show is too old-fashioned and corny,
but it beats the sitcom garbage that is out today, by a long shot.
David has just turned 17 and is hoping to impress a new girl in town.
It's kind of a blind date, with her coming over for David's birthday.
He had heard she dates college men, so Dave is concerned he will appear
old enough for her. He assumes she must be at least 18.
The episode is filled with funny wise-guy remarks from Ricky, who was
excellent at delivering these lines with a straight face. He gives
David the business a lot of times but the latter is so easy-going he
never seems to mind. He's a great older brother, like Wally was to
Beaver in "Leave It To Beaver."
A humorous bit in this episode was Ozzie and neighbor Thorny going at
it over a "wolf whistle" attachment to a car. I wonder if they still
have those things available to put on cars?
This was a very entertaining early second-season episode and I can see
why they included it in the "The Best Of The Adventures Of Ozzie &
Harriet" DVD. This episode can also be played with a commentary track
by David, the only member of the family still alive. David is now 71
years old. Wow, that's hard to imagine.
