"Love and Sandy"
is an episode of Flipper starring
Brian Kelly, Luke Halpin, and Tommy Norden.
Sandy falls for an older woman, Bonnie, while they search for her strayed sea lion Sparky, and Bud inadvertently sends Sparky off with flipper to an alligator-infested cove.
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
