44-02-23 Old News About Belvidere – Ugh

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN, DAVID WHITEHOUSE AND CLARENCE HARTZELL
Uncle Fletcher comes over with a book of newspaper clippngs about the city of Belvidere; Russell and Sade realize it's useless to inform him that they really have no interest in the book.

TRIVIA:

+ Oyster Krecker's first name is Joseph.

+ Russell's on the phone and is bored with the story of Oyster's cousin Lombard in Galena buying a catfish for 15 cents.  Then Lombard got in a fist-fight with the fella he bought it from and he poked him with the catfish upside the snoot. The fella threatened to call the police and hit Lombard with the fish. Lombard smacked the guy in the face with it. Then Lombard threw his shoes at him.  They later buried the hatchet and formed a beautiful friendship.

+ Uncle Fletcher receives a phone call.  Vic guesses it's Lou Webb, the organist that can play the pipe organ with a knife and fork instead of fingers and also…  It's Mis' McFolkerson calling to say she's found eight more books of newspaper clippings about Belvidere.  Webb was really the show's organist (1943-44).

+ Mis' Folkerston also runs a rooming house in the Gook's neighborhood (Mis' Harris runs another and so does Mis' Keller.)
