42-09-15 The Silent March

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY,  BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON

Vic gets a letter in the mail from his lodge buddy, H.K. Fleeber.

Since the last time we heard about the All-Star Marching Team, there appears to be a bit of a turnover. Gone are I. Edson Box and Harry Fie; they have been replaced by E. Tyson Stoogie and Hermie Wermie!

Can the disintegrated Marching Team make a comeback?  Fleeber has some new ideas...
________________________
It's hard to believe that I. Edson Box and Harry Fie were replaced. I suppose we'll never know why for sure.

Trivia:

+ Roughly the first minute and a half of the episode is missing. In this missing time I'm pretty sure that Rush has been asked by Vic to name off all the members of the All-Star Marching Team.

+ Two new people were mentioned but no explanation of why or who they are: Mis' Moorehouse and Harry Winnie.

+ H.K. Fleeber's personal stationary letterhead has changed since we last heard about it. In addition to the misleading, "Grovelman, South Carolina - the geographic center of the United States" banner, the new letterhead claims that Fleeber is the "First white child born in Grovelman, South Carolina."

Mysteriously, the Fleeber letterhead also contains a depiction of a volcano!

+ The letter from H.K. Fleeber describes both E. Tyson Stoogie and Hermie Wermie as "hearty, intelligent and resourceful."

+ We find out in this episode that J.J.J.J. Stunbolt and Y.Y. Flirch live in a tent (presumably, the same tent) on a vacant lot.

+ This is not the first letter than Vic has gotten from H.K. Fleeber.

+ The episode has "sound bleed" from the tape it was transferred from. It's annoying but it's not so horrible that you can't enjoy the episode, which has nice sound otherwise.
