Sandy (Luke Halpin) is fishing, when he spots the boat "McCoy's Animal Show" floating into view. It's pretty blonde Cheryl Miller (as Bonnie McCoy), taking her animals out for a ride, while father McCoy is home recuperating from an illness. Her sea lion Sparky escapes, and cavorts with Flipper. After Sandy helps her, Ms. Miller rewards him with a kiss on his cheek. Sandy is smitten with the "older woman", falling head over heels into the water. Ricks (Brian Kelly) notices his love-struck son is wearing his shirt backwards. Later, Sandy and Flipper must rescue Miller and Bud (Tommy Norden) from a vicious alligator.
Miller and the African animals are another "Daktari" try-out; this episode follows her future co-star Marshall Thompson's guest appearance. This is the first of several Cheryl Miller (as Bonnie McCoy) appearances; however, in her next appearance, nobody remembers her! Miller's flirting with Sandy is strange, and the "romance" quite silly - but, the animals are cute, especially Flipper and the alligator.
**** Love and Sandy (1/23/65) Ricou Browning ~ Luke Halpin, Cheryl Miller, Tommy Norden
