37-07-07 Smelly’s Tonsil Operation

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
In an episode that's very related to the previous one, Smelly Clark is in the hospital about to have a tosilectomy.

Rush, Rooster Davis, LeRoy Snow, Mildred Tisdel and Milton Welch will all be on hand to watch the operation. So, it's a big day for everyone.

SEE THE SCRIPT
________________________________
Another great script by writer Paul Rhymer. Smelly is at the mercy of his chums (especially Rush and Mildred) who take his caramels, flowers and virtually triumph in his pain.

It seems though that Smelly is more brave than the other kids, and they will have a tough time trying to take him down a notch.

The script will probably remind you of your childhood and the anticipation of the very simple surgery. [My tonsils grew back and I had to have them out a second time!]

Sade mentions three alarm clocks that Vic had broken.  That's at least six of the alarm clock-variety of clock we know he broke in the show's history.

In a previous episode, Dr. Doud was an eye doctor (or at least one would suspect so.)  It could be that back in the day, family physicians did all kinds of things, including prescribe glasses, pull teeth, etc.
