44-06-21 Rishigan Fishigan's Secret

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN, DAVID WHITEHOUSE AND CLARENCE HARTZELL

Real advert, 1944
Uncle Fletcher and Rishigan Fishigan (from Sishigan, Michigan) are goofing off at the Interurban station. The peanut machine (which Uncle Fletcher owns an interest in) takes Fishigan's penny. Fishigan wants his peanuts and so, he rolls up his sleeves in order to shake the peanuts loose.

Once he rolls up his sleeves, Uncle Fletcher is shocked to see a tattoo that revels Rishigan's real name: Jorrigan Corrigan from Borrigan, Oregon. (((HEAR)))

He must tell Vic this dire news!
