Storyline

Candice isn't around when Jack visits the Bergen household, but Charlie McCarthy is - he's actually a real child, headed to the city dump in his tuxedo, for target practice. Jack can't believe his eyes, and Frances Bergen sings "Them There Eyes." By the time Edgar Bergen shows up to discuss the Bergens' upcoming appearance on the Benny program, Jack's even more confused than Mortimer Snerd usually is. Written by David Stevens
