Storyline

Clive gets a letter from Maplin to say that Mr. Partridge will not be replaced as it is late in the season. Instead the staff will enact nursery rhymes for the kids, which they hate doing. Ted comes across Uncle Sammy, a former puppeteer down on his luck and gets Clive to give him Partridge's old job. Unfortunately Sammy makes off with Maplin's trophies but the police feel sorry for him and everybody blames Ted for only giving him a third of the money Clive gave Ted to pay Sammy.
