40-04-18 Uncle Fletcher is Sending Three Bulldogs

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON 
Sade's Uncle Fletcher sends a letter saying he's sending Rush three bulldogs.

Vic and Sade literally freak out at the notion of having three fierce bulldogs chained up in the basement.

When Rush finds out the dogs are supposed to be his, he pleads (to no avail) with his parents to allow him to have the dogs.

Vic and Sade will have none of it and contact Uncle Fletcher to stop him before it's too late.

I think this is probably one of the best programs we will never hear - it may be the best.  It looks as though it is one of the most fast-paced episodes that we know about.  It's funny and well-written.

The proposed letter to Fletcher is memorable:
SADE: [Reads] "Dear Uncle Fletcher. Just received your lovely letter. We are all fine an' well. About the bull-dogs I guess maybe you hadn't better send them." That too blunt? 
VIC: It's not blunt enough. Why don't ya start right out, "No bull-dogs." "No bull-dogs, no bull-dogs, no bull-dogs."
As  is the telephone call to Fletcher...
SADE: Yeah, everybody be still. [To phone] Hello? Hello, Uncle Fletcher? Hello? Uncle Fletcher? Hello, Uncle Fletcher this is Sadie, Uncle Fletcher. Yes. Uncle Fletcher, don't send any bull-dogs. I say don't send any bull-dogs. Bull-dogs. [Almost in a panic] Don't send any bull-dogs, Uncle Fletcher.
