Newton Munroe is a traveling salesman who sells whatever he can get a good deal on out of the trunk of his car. Andy is concerned at first that he's selling stolen goods but he's legitimate, if somewhat unlucky. Soon everything he's been selling starts to break down: Goober's transistor radio, Floyd's watch and the fox fur Barney bought for Thelma Lou is losing its fur in large clumps. Barney runs him in for peddling his wares without a permit and decides to keep him working around the courthouse. Problem is, almost everything he touches turns into a minor disaster. Andy decides that Newton needs a bit of confidence building and gives him the task of painting his house. The result are in keeping with Newton's past experiences.
