One of the last television appearances by Beverly Wills, daughter of Joan Davis, who plays the mother bringing her two sons and dog to Sam Drucker's Store for babysitting. Sadly, by the time this episode first aired in December 3,1963, Beverly, her two real life sons, and her grandmother, all died in a house fire on October 24, 1963. See more »

Second episode where Kate's bogus confidence building works too well, this time for gawky geek Herbie, in love with Billie Jo and supposedly replacing Uncle Joe. Another entire episode of a misunderstanding owning the plotline and a lot of running around. Basically, what all Three's Company episodes would be. And Pat Woodall's wig looks here to stay. It's awful! Looks like a crow landed on her head, and died there. Why would a young woman have to do this?
