  • Episode Description
  • Another classic; in this episode, Rob finds a hair or two in his brush; of course he assumes he's going bald. A visit to his barber (Ned Glass) hardly reassures him. The barber tells him to use a concotion on his head whose formula is very close to salad dressing. Rob dreams of using the stuff, then waking with a salad on his scalp instead of hair. Fortunately, he realizes he is dreaming and wakes up (or does he)...BALD! Finally he manages to really awaken, and finds his hair is just fine. Buddy and Sally figure in the dream and are great, spinning Rob in the barber chair while the barber chuckles evilly. One of the stand-out episodes, right up there with "It May Look Like a Walnut!", "Sneaky Camera", and "Washington Versus the Bunny."moreless

    • Before shooting October Eve Dick Van Dyke was worried he would lose his hair Carl Reiner bet Dick $500 that would or wouldn't lose his hair.
