33-xx-xx The Joy of Canned Foods

The Gooks enjoy a meal of canned food, probably making sure the audience knows what kind of quality vittles they are getting.

A somewhat strange episode (it appears); according to this article, this episode was written and performed simply as an apology to an "upset" canning industry.

The show had received a bunch of letters from an earlier episode in which the Gooks had claimed that their canned food had gone bad. But there was such a firestorm from the canning industry that Paul Rhymer decided to write an episode that was rather complimentary to the canning industry; thus the Gooks enjoyed canned foods and probably made a big deal about it.

The date is unknown but it was probably 1933 or before. The title is one I have given to the episode purely for identification purposes.
