[ cheering ] man: and now, boys and girls, it's time for an exciting message from the solow toy company. where's tabitha's badge? oh, she doesn't have one. why not? because she's related to darrin. well, i admit that's a mark against her, but it's hardly her fault.
for the hoho hope chest. oh, h-hi, there! it's me again. and now, is everybody ready to see who won all the prizes in the hoho hope chest? [ cheering ] so, i "ho-fully" mix up the numbers [ ding! ] and we pick a winner! and the winning number is... ...12! over here! this little girl right here!

oh, darrin, she's not out to destroy you. she was simply being a -- a fun-loving witch? well, yes. and a doting grandmother. you're kidding. no, i'm afraid i'm deadly serious. if the little girl who won yesterday's hope chest is not in today's studio audience, i refuse to go on. why? because i like her. well, hoho, this isn't logical. well, why not? because i'm a star. darrin, we have an emergency. i just got a call from the producer of hoho the clown. and? and hoho refuses to work unless "that cute little doll" that won yesterday's hoho hope chest is in today's studio audience. you mean tabitha? no tabitha, no show. no show, no commercials. no commercials, no client.
to amuse my ulcer? this is the first time i've heard it. honestly, i tell you. you have no time to tell me anything. just have sam get tabitha over to the studio immediately as a personal favor to the president of the company. [ telephone rings ] hello? why? because hoho the clown refuses to go on unless she's there. darrin, you know what i think? i think mother did more than monkey around with hoho's hope chest. i think she monkeyed around with hoho himself. is she giving you a hard time? oh, n-not exactly, larry. she suggests that -- sam, this is larry. will you please bring tabitha over to the studio immediately?
let's you and i go over to the studio and see what this monkey business is all about. mother! mother?! oh, goodness. tabitha, you and i have got to go somewhere. [ ding! ] ooh! that's a little fast for you, huh? hello, tate. oh, mr. solow. what a pleasant surprise. what brings you here? i come every friday like clockwork to make sure you're giving me my money's worth. uh, darrin, mr. solow, owner of the solow toy company. may i present one of mcmann & tate's most creative young executives, mr. darrin stephens? how do you do, sir? likewise. now let's watch hoho the clown. boys and girls, we're gonna change our format today. instead of doing the show for the entire audience, we're gonna play it to just one member.
ho, ho! there she is! oh, mr. cameraman, would you get a shot of this cute little doll sitting on her mother's lap? oh! darrin, did you change the format? no, i wouldn't do that without your approval. i liked the format the way it was. oh, isn't she pretty? ooh, don't touch hoho's nose. you know why? because i'm gonna make sure that you win all the prizes. who is she? who is that kid that's ruining my program? on with the show-ow-ow-ow. i have no idea. do you, darrin? no.
well, she'd hardly be famous as the result of one television show! don't count on it. the complaints must be pouring in. and when they discover that tabitha is my daughter, they'll think that the television show was rigged, leading to an investigation by the fcc where i will decline to answer questions on the grounds that my wife and my mother-in-law are witches! so do i. so do i. i-i've been calling her and calling her, and she will not answer. e went away for the weekend. would you like me to look for her? please. her two favorite cities are paris and rome. i'll try paris first. [ ding! ] [ ding! ] she wasn't in paris. uh-huh. what took you so long? i couldn't find a cab. uh, now i'll try rome. you wait right there.
[ telephone rings ] hello? oh, hi, mrs. kravitz. oh, you saw tabitha on the "hoho the clown show." yeah, she was kind of cute, wasn't she? you want me to get you on the "build your castle show" because you need a refrigerator and a rotisserie? you want me to put in the fix for you on the "build your castle show" the way i did for tabitha on "hoho"? [ ding! ] mrs. kravitz, i did not put in the fix for tabitha on the "hoho show"! i have never put in the fix for anybody on any show that i've been connected with! i think i'll go take another look around the colosseum. [ ding! ] samantha, come back here! uh, she went back to rome. uh, to roam around the house again. mrs. kravitz, i'm afraid there's some mistake.
if you want a refrigerator and a rotisserie, you'll just have to go out and buy one. samantha! [ ding! ] yes? see, that is the kind of thing i'm in for! mother! mother! [ horse whinnying ] [ horse snorts ] uh, mrs. stephens? uh, y-yes? i'm hoho the clown. ho, ho, ho, ho, ho? oh! i got your name and address from my producer. how's your daughter? oh, she's just fine, thank you. you look a little different without your makeup. i know. oh, well, you can't be on all the time. who's your friend? oh, she's a present for my cute little doll! where is she? ho, ho, ho!
how's your daughter? oh, she's fine, hoho. what's with the pony? she's a present for my cute little doll! ho, ho! would you hold her, please? is she housebroken? for what she cost me, she should be. i used the money that i laid aside for my wife's birthday present. why? beats me. for some reason or other, your kid has gotten under my skin. i can't stop thinking about her. it's like i'm in her power. you're not in her power. you're in -- darrin. oh. uh, these are for her, too. and this, too. [ chuckles ] where is she? i'm longing to be near her! darrin, why don't you go upstairs and get tabitha? i'll, uh, take the pony outside. come on. i'm gonna see her! i'm gonna see my cute little doll!
[ chuckles ] ho, ho, ho! ho! mother! mother, i want to see you! mother, if you don't come here right this second, i'll never let you see tabitha again. [ ding! ] samantha, i'm surprised at you. stooping to blackmail? shh! where have you been? i'm spending the weekend in mexico city. oh, well, i never would have looked there. aco, dear? no! mother, i'm very annoyed with you! about what? [ gasps ] darwin needs a haircut. i am in no mood for any of your jokes. i am annoyed with you because of what you did to hoho the clown. oh, that! hasn't it worn off? worn off? it's worse! now, mother, he's in there.
without any further ado! oh! [ ding! ] now, if you'll excuse me, i'm getting back to mexico city. i'm lunching with a very handsome bullfighter. adi?s, muchacha. [ ding! ] ol?. here she is, hoho. here's your cute little doll. what's so cute about her? did i bring a pony in here? ah, where's my pony? it just happened to -- sam, what happened? [ doorbell rings ] well, i -- uh, here, honey. mm-hmm. uh, excuse me, hoho. it's your daughter, stephens. i hired a detective, and he found out it's your daughter. when mr. solow called me at the club and told me, i was shocked beyond belief! i-i couldn't speak. words failed me.
r, baby. ho, ho, ho, ho? don't "ho, ho" me, you ingrate. you and stephens here have entered into a conspiracy to drive the solow toy company out of business! after all i've done for you. as close as we've been, like father and son. darrin, if you needed money, if you needed toys, why didn't you come to me and say so? larry, are you trying to say that you knew nothing about this? yes. effective immediately, the "hoho the clown" program is hereby canceled. but you can't do that to the children of america. you have no alternative. and i have no alternative but to ask you to tender your resignation. darrin, you're through! so is my account with mcmann & tate. mr. solow, that won't be necessary now that stephens is no longer with the agency. i want you to know i consider his actions illegal, unethical, shocking... [ ding! ]
can discuss how to get out of this. is the spell off hoho? oh, yes, yes. we just have to figure out a way to bail him and you out. let's see. we can say, uh...we can sa-- no. [ gasps ] we can say it's a publicity stunt! a publicity stunt! yeah. for what? uh... for a cute little doll. [ ding! ] they look like twins! well, thank you. uh, now i have to make hoho believe he was all part of it. [ ding! ] honey, what do i say? well, let's see. uh, well, i'll start the ball rolling, then you take over and run with it. mm-hmm. oh, hold it. [ ding! ] ...disgusting, despicable, and humiliating.
the newest member of the solow family -- the tabitha doll. the what? the tabitha doll. uh, darrin thought of it, and i designed it i-in my spare time, using our daughter as the model. then hoho put the real tabitha on television and played favorites with her to create public interest. it was a publicity stunt to promote a new product. uh, yeah, and i went along with it just to help out the sponsor, even though it temporarily hurt my image. well, why wasn't i consulted? well, because, uh -- tate? yes, sir? shut up! you know something? this is a pretty cute little doll. and that was a pretty cute publicity stunt. and these are two pretty clever fellas, huh? they sure are. and, tate? yes, sir?
hi, darling! hi, sweetheart. what are you doing home so early? i sneaked away to watch "hoho the clown" with you. well, isn't that nice? is he gonna reveal the publicity stunt? mm-hmm. and he's going to say, "in the interest of fair play, "every loyal viewer who called in or wrote in to complain will receive, absolutely free, a brand-new tabitha doll."
oh, quick! come here. sit down. come on. sit, like i told you. if you're gonna watch it, you have to sit. ho, ho, ho! i'm hoho the clown! [ kids booing ] all you wonderful booers will be happy to know that each and every one of you will receive a new tabitha doll, absolutely free! [ kids cheering ] ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho! that's rather a cute idea. whose was it? larry's. well, it persuaded mr. solow to keep his account with us. [ chuckles ] why is hoho's picture -- and mine is, uh -- darling -- oh. i don't know. i fixed it this morning. well, i'll just fix it again. [ ding! ]
sam, about your mother -- well, d-darrin, i-i didn't know any, uh -- not in front of the baby. -- captions by vitac voil?! hey, strawberry waffles. in honor of this historic occasion. honey, just because larry gave me a day off in the middle of the week is no reason to get historical. well, go ahead. say what you want. but to me, this is a day to remember -- a day of significance. you know what i think the significance is? he's going to ask me to work the weekend. well, live, for tomorrow you work. samantha, what have i done to deserve you? [ ding! ] nothing! and you don't. mother! i better run, or i'll be late for the office. wait a minute, darrin. now, let me explain. mother, darrin's off today.

t power plant. there must be a gold mine under that hood. i hope so. hydraulic suspension system. and look at that control panel. it's even got a radar screen. i don't think i can bear all this enthusiasm. see you later, dear. darrin, you really should have thanked mother for the car. well, i know i should have, except for one thing. what's that? i can't take it. why not? at's a product of witchcraft. but mother was only being nice. i know. will you look at that steering system? darrin, couldn't you make one little exception? honey, if you make one little exception, before you know it, you'll make a lot more. couldn't you keep it for a little while? unh-unh. will you look at that power plant? don't you realize how hurt mother's going to be if you don't keep it? honey, it's a matter of principle.
she will? it's worth a try. okay, i'll take it, but only for a little while. and, remember, i'm only doing this for your mother. joe: justalm down, charlie, and go over this step by step. now, we know the place was locked, right? right. and we're the only ones that have keys, right? right! well, there's your answer. no one could possibly have gotten in. you're talking nonsense! the car is gone, isn't it? is it? what? i don't know about you, but i am too old to take up another trade. do you want to tell j.j. that $150,000 worth of car is missing? and five years of research? not until we've gone over the whole thing step by step.
now, how am i on that side? about 2 feet away. that's close enough. it handles like a dream. i can't wait to get her out on the highway. it does ride beautifully. would you like to get behind the wheel -- uh, the steering column? may i? of course. [ chuckles ] oh, hon, you better take off your shoes. take off my shoes? your high heels -- they'll ruin the carpet. i'm not wearing high heels. oh. here. [ chuckles ] okay? yeah. whoa! [ chuckles ] [ engine turns over ] re you doing? starting the car.
are you kidding? i said you could get behind the wheel, but that's all. y-you mean, you're never gonna let me drive it? oh, sure, after i've broken it in -- after the first 10,000 miles or so. honey, do we sti have those old army blankets of mine? mm-hmm. what for? i thought i could put them aroundalls t wf the garage, protect the finish. i have a better idea. what? why don't i make a slipcover for it? what kind of material? to tell larry about this car. he'lturn green with envy. isn't he gonna wonder how you could afford a car like this? i'll tell him the truth. what?! i mean, i'll say it was a gift from my mother-in-law, and i had to accept it to keep peace in the family. now, here's why i think you guys haven't been on the ball.
golf, don't you? yes. we can still get in nine holes, and we can talk at the same time. only if we play the same ball. now, here's what i think your basic mistake has been. you just don't understand the meatpacking business. [ telephone buzzes ] yes? uh, put him on. i'll just be a moment. well, darrin boy, how are you enjoying the day off? good. but don't make any plans for the weekend. no kidding -- a new car? is that right? [ laughs ] sounds wild. uh, just a minute. it's darrin stephens. he wants us to come over and see his new car. sounds like something really special. tate, i didn't fly in all the way from cincinnati to see a new car! uh, darrin, maybe i'll stop in on my way home. right. bye. sounds like an expensive car.
back to why i think you fellas are off the track with my product, huh? oh, sure, sure. it's one of those new experimental jobs. what is? stephens' car. has a flip-top roof, hydraulic suspension, and a 425-horsepower engine. how'd you like to drive that home? all i want to drive home is my point -- namely, that your ideas for my product have been too routine -- no dash or imagination. tate, this is the space age, and sheldrake wants to be a part of it. do i make myself clear? yes. but how do we work sausages into the space age? that's your job. well... [ sighs ] let me see, now. it's, uh, got hydraulic suspension, huh? what has? stephens' car.
"made in detroit"? charlie, we got to find some way to explain that car's disappearance. you're right. we got to find some way. what's that? there is no way to explain it. i mean, what do you say? "sorry. we lost it." reminds me of a guy i know who lost a house. a house? no kidding. how? back taxes. charlie, i wish i had your sense of humor. i'd cut my throat. now, there's an idea. hi.
was just looking at the engine -- would you like some tea? oh, no, thank you. i was just looking at the engine, and it was real cute the way you put "made in detroit" on it and a serial number. makes it look real legitimate. what do you mean? the car is legitimate. of course, you mean a legitimate copy, don't you? where did that car come from? darrin. how should i know? look in that magazine. that's where it was when i cast the spell. you mean, it came from detroit?! what do you think, the stork brought it? now, listen, you two. i don't understand. i do! your mother gave me a hot car for a present! mother! don't you look at me like that. i was trying to do what's-his-name a favor. but to steal a car! well, where was i going to get it? i'm a witch, not a car manufacturer.
darrin, dear, there's no reason -- to be in a snit. mother just didn't understand what she was doing. well, i mean, the worst you can say is that she was a trifle overeager. swell, that car is worth a fortune. there's probably an alarm out for it all over the country. what are we going to tell the police when they tch up with it? your mother is an overeager witch? well! i'm not gonna stay here and listen to this ingrate. goodbye, samantha. i'm off to new orleans for the mardi gras. oh, mother, wait a minute. oh, please, mother. please come back. sam, let her go. she's caused enough trouble. oh. mother. mother, are you listening to me?
s her? we've got trouble enough. the first thing to do is go to the garage and put that car back where it belongs. oh, darrin, don't you understand? i can't. mother's the only one that can bring that car back. mother! mother, dear! you're a dear, sweet, wonderful woman. we need you. mother? mother, dear? it's no use. you insulted her. i insulted her? oh, no. i insulted her. well, let's not stand here quibbling. the first thing to do is to lock that garage door before -- [ doorbell rings ] 's too late. the police. darrin, pull yourself together. open the door. hello, darrin. you know mr. sheldrake. uh, sure. nice to see you again, stephens. nice to see you again, sir. please come in. oh, thank you. thank you very much. oh, hi, sam. mr. sheldrake, i'd like you to meet my wife. this is samantha.
can i get you some coffee? oh, no, thanks. don't bother, sam. well, sit down. make yourselves comfortable. we've been brainstorming some new ideas for sheldrake sausages, and we thought we'd bounce them off you. and we're both anxious to see that car, too. car? car? your new car. new car. new car. yeah, i'm dying to see that hydraulic suspension system. where is it? uh, uh, well, um... uh, the thing is, uh -- [ clears throat ] i've just put it to bed. at noon? oh, yes, it's all tucked in for its nap. we promise not to wake it up. [ laughter ] well, the thing is, um, it's, um... are you trying to say, "business before pleasure"? uh, yes, that's it. first, let me hear some of those ideas you want to bounce off me.
half a day off. stephens, let's look at the car, and we can talk about it at the same time. darling, you go ahead. i'll see if i can contact that party. oh. okay. it's in the garage. oh. [ door opens, closes ] mother, now, i want you to listen to me carefully. here are the keys, mr. sheldrake. thank you. be very kind to those brakes. they're very tender. my boy, i was driving before you were born. just once around the block? i can't bear to watch this. i'm going in to have a double. [ engine turns over ]
darrin, we're back. sam, you found her. yes. you don't look too well. and i have you to thank for it. if that's the way you're going to act -- mother, mother, please, wait. darrin, mother came all the way from the mardi gras in new orleans just to help you. don't ask me why. all right, i'm sorry. just put that car back where it belongs, please. oh, she will. she will. just don't bug her. what are you doing?! shh, she has to concentrate. wait a minute! not now! what did you do that for?! isn't that what you wanted? no! he's too much. samantha, don't you re-- isn't sheldrake back yet?
oh. oh, my stars! so, we're in complete agreement, right? right. you're gonna go to peru, and i'm taking off for brazil. and if anybody asks, we never even heard of the car. we never even heard of each other. right! [ ding! ] [ engine revving ] [ engine stops ] sheldrake's the name. sausage is my game. charlie. hmm? here's something we can agree on. i won't say anything about this if you don't.
has the pounding gone away? oh, yeah. it changed to a low thump. i feel terrible about this. i don't understand. a responsible man, head of a big company, and he just drives off with your car. oh, well, larry, you know these rich men. they're so eccentric. but i know how much that car is worth. well, darrin isn't worried. why should you be? he's not worried? no. i'm sick. oh, darrin. [ telephone rings ] oh, excuse me. hello? no, this is mrs. stephens. oh, uh, mr. sheldrake. where are you? at the airport? what's he doing there? and what about the car? uh, mr. sheldrake, there's something i'd like to try and explain to you, but i'm not absolutely sure how to --
you have? you were? you are? oh, why -- why, mr. sheldrake, that sounds wonderful! yes. all right. goodbye. well, what is it? what happened to him? what about the car? uh, he took a slight detour. just going around the block? he said that someday, when he figured it out for himself, what? he also said to go ahead and use the car in the advertising campaign. he has the rights to it. but...what? how did he get them? well, it seems he ran into the two men who designed it. i don't understand anything about this, but it's okay with me. [ chuckles ] he sure flipped over that car, didn't he? yeah, he flipped, all right. oh, he certainly did.
it's my skin diving outfit. oh. what? thank heaven. i thought that while i was sleeping, someone had turned you into that. [chuckles] no. oh, where are you going, master? it is 4:00 in the morning. uh, well, it's gonna be dawn in a couple of minutes. i'm going down to the beach. dressed like that? oh, roger and i are going hunting for sunken treasure. oh, that is a waste of time, master. i can give you all the treasures you desire. if i live to be another 2000 years old, i will not understand you. well, it's not the treasure i'm interested in, jeannie. it's the hunt, you see. how do you know there is treasure there? well, i-i don't know exactly. it's just that, uh, a lot of pirate ships used to ply the waters off the coast here, and it's rumored that captain kidd had a ship to go down with a lot of sunken treasure on it. who--? who was this captain kidd?
now, let's see. captain kidd, captain... [mumbles indistinctly] oh, yeah. uh, "william kidd "started out as a respectable seaman. "the british government sent him out "to harass the french fleet in 1700. "his men forced him to turn renegade, and he became a pirate." well, he was quite a fellow. it took the whole british navy to look for him. [scoffs] i am sure he was not as brave as you, master. [chuckles] oh, no, jeannie. i'd hate to have tangled with him. i'll tell you that. ah, i am sure you would have beaten him, master. oh, i doubt it. oh, yes, you would have. that all right with you, fellas? [cheers] kidd: hey, you! huh? oh, who--? me? me? yeah, you! kill him, captain kidd. with pleasure. prepare to die! uh, now, now, now, wait a minute! agh! jeannie! jeannie!

application from her. and the air force has no security clearance on miss jeannie jeannie. you beginning to get the picture? that's incredible. doctor, i've been with the bureau for over 15 years, and this is the first time we haven't been able to turn up one single statistic on a person. for all we've been able to find out, she might've sprung up out of thin air. bellows: she came from somewhere. that's right. don't worry. before we're through, we'll be able to tell you everything out that girl.
