37-xx-xx Harold "Rotten" Davis Takes up the Tobacco Habit

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON  
Twenty year-old Rotten Davis, who is a bit of a showoff, has taken up the habit of smoking cigars and chewing tobacco.

He's got his pockets loaded with tobacco and he wants to come over and smoke with Vic.

But before he ever makes it over to the Gook house, he gets sick from consumption of his various tobacco products and must be sent home via ambulance!

I think it's pretty safe to assume that this episode introduced Rotten Davis.  His later hijinx would astound the listening audience.

He's a bit larger-than-life, almost a cartoon character.

Laurastine Price's child once broke the Gook's cuspidor.  That sounds like it could be messy.

Rotten told everyone his girlfriend was actress Queentena Quarles but Sade read in the newspaper that her beau was movie star Wilbert Willison.

Rotten was caught drawing mustaches on photos on books in the library.  When threatened with arrest, he claimed he owned the library.  (Paul Rhymer seemed to have a thing for drawing mustaches on people.)

  1. Cute story. The Davis clan was always good for some excitement. Nice to have a script to peruse.

  2. Rush's line that when he is older, he'll probably be "dragg'in down snappy lung fulls of high class smoke" makes me crack up! How different it was before research began connecting lung cancer to smoking, and the majority of adults and teenagers smoked.
