Herman wants to buy a car for Marilyn but isn't a match for the fine talk of smooth salesman Fair Deal Dan and ends up buying a banger. Lily tells him to take the car back and demand his money back. However, Fair Deal Dan is long gone and, what's worse, the car turns out to be stolen and the police suspects Herman and arrests him. Written by Marco van Hoof <>

Frank Gorshin guest stars
15 November 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Marilyn needs a car and Herman buys a lemon from a shady used car salesman.

Gorshin (appearing on Batman as the Riddler that same year) plays Fair Deal Dan in this OK episode. The car he sells to Herman turns out to be stolen and Herman ends up in jail. Funniest scene is a fast motion one as Dan and his gang pack up their used cars and make a getaway.
