32-11-28 Whoosh!

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
Vic and Sade get to spend some time with Rush's dog, Mr. Johnson, and Sade finds she doesn't hate him after all, thanks mostly to his ''whoosh!''.

______________
Mr. Johnson is a very intelligent, but peculiar canine, for sure.  While the dog is spoken about a couple of more times, he pretty much hides away (I guess?) the rest of the series.  Seems that the dog's incredible, ''whoosh'' instead of a bark, would have entertained the heck out of radio audiences, especially kids... but then again, Paul Rhymer knew best, I'm sure.

32-11-26 Mr. Johnson, the Peoria Peke

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
Sade makes it known to Vic that she doesn't like Rush spending so much time in the basement playing with his dog, Mr. Johnson.  She also makes it known she doesn't like the dog.

Though his adopted parents tease him about the dogs' lack of intelligence, it doesn't stop Rush from bragging that his new dog is a 'Peoria Peke' breed.
Mr. Johnson?

_________________
A 1932 episode that still doesn't quite have the characters flushed out to the extent we know them today.  Sade seems to be headed that way, but Vic is very un-Vic-like in this script.

The dog will show up now and again in the material we have, but he's more or less just an anomaly.

Trivia:

+ Rush was trying make glue out of pants' buttons, down in the basement.

+ Sade mentions to Vic about buying a pot roast.  It's 1932 and the height of depression.  The roast will cost 75 cents.

xx-xx-xx Rush Wants a Serpent (partial)

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY AND BILL IDELSON
Rush wants a serpent, and has a talk with Gov about it.

SEE SOME DIALOGUE (only one page of the script exists)
______________ 
While only one page of a script, it's amusing.  I can just hear Rush being as excited as a horse, while Vic is pragmatic.

xx-xx-xx Rush Talks Candidly about Mildred (partial)

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY AND BILL IDELSON
Rush talks so candidly and out-of-character about Mildred Tisdel that he
seems to almost shock Vic.

SEE SOME DIALOGUE
____________
Even though it appears as though just this one page of script exists for this episode, it's a doozy. Rush's descriptions of classmate and long time friend Mildred will 'wow' you.
Loves meat & potatoes
RUSH: [...] (to Mildred) "I seen you in the cafeteria the other noon going after potatoes and gravy like you thought you were never gonna get another square meal in your life." [...] She can put away meat and potatoes 'til who hung the cat. No, the fathead thinks everybody loves her. [...] She's just that conceited. Why, if Mildred was a boy instead of a girl, I'd paste her one upside the snoot.
Another interesting line is:
RUSH: [...] (about Mildred) Fragile as a horse, my undershirt. [...]
If I had to guess when this episode occurred, I'd venture the late 1930's.
