Fibber has a bright idea--to buy a small trailer to haul their stuff when they go on vacation. However, Molly is worried--she knows her husband is an idiot when it comes to salesmen and he's bound to come home with more than they agreed to. Against her better judgment, she sends him to the RV show...and he returns with a HUGE and very expensive RV. How does he explain it? He tells her it was free...which it wasn't. How will the McGees get out of this mess?

The "Fibber McGee and Molly" series ran on the radio for well over 20 years and spurred on a short series of films. No wonder, then that eventually the show made its way to TV. However, there were some changed--new actors were chosen to play the characters (partly because the originals were quite old and also because Marian Driscoll was too ill to play her part). Now you'd think the show would have been a sure success--after all, America had loved the originals. Well, it wasn't to be and the show only last a half season. Why? Perhaps people were too fond of the originals. You can't blame this pilot episode, as the show seemed to have the necessary ingredients and still plays reasonably well today.
