I Would Like To See This One Again
18 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this Patty Duke many years ago, but I remember it from the title. As I recall the jokes start with a frog in the bed & then escalate into more & more elaborate jokes involving the guilty parties, & then the innocent ones. This is an episode dedicated to slap stick at it finest.

One that I remember particularly is when Patty is trying to nail somebody with a cream pie, they duck the pie and her innocent bystander dad takes it full on the face. This one impressed me because of the way it was set up, it was hilarious.

William Schalert could really do the dead pan innocent reaction to the shot too. His acting ability never got a lot of attention even though he has appeared in a lot of TV & movie roles. While he was never a star, he was always enjoyable and on this series did a lot of very good work. While episode was just funny, when I watched these shows I wanted to take Patty & Cathy out on a triple date with me. Ah to be young again, when I could dream & do it.

Of course it would be a tough date without special effects. Since this was in black & white, the frog was not green. I don't think this frog turned into a prince, but with Patty Duke the stitches were into the warts.
