Hans Conried (as Popkin) arrives, with his ailing son. But, Mr. Conried can't afford the $100 treatments Alex (Carl Betz) recommends. And, he won't take charity, calling it, "The most insidious obligation of all." In order to help the poor man out, Donna (Donna Reed) hires him as a part-time handyman, with disastrous results. However, Donna thinks Conried has a talent for making toys, and tries to get them displayed in Richard Deacon's toy store. Peddler Jeff (Paul Peterson) and shill Mary (Shelley Fabares) try to sell Conried's toy rabbits, but get in trouble with the law
A good cast, in an ordinary episode. Robert "Bobby" Crawford looks like brother Johnny ("The Rifleman") Crawford. Conried and Donna should have gotten treatment, for electrocution and inhalation.
*** It's the Principle of the Thing (1/21/59) Oscar Rudolph ~ Hans Conried, Donna Reed, Paul Peterson
