  • Episode Description
  • Fred agrees to appear in a before-and-after weight reduction commercial, but is humiliated to learn that he is the before example. An offer of $1,000 if he can drop twenty-five pounds in a month fails miserably, as does every other diet plan, until an overeaters group takes him on as a challenge.

  • Notes (2)

    • This episode was recorded on 1-23-61.

    • First season episodes incorporated an ad for Winston Cigarettes into the opening credits (this version of the opening was removed for syndication). Due to the decision to use a standard opening and closing for syndicated versions of the episodes, many episodes have incorrect closing credits. Some later episodes drop the "Meet the Flintstones" closing credits in favor of footage of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm singing "Let the Sunshine In."

    Trivia (2)

    • Wilma mentions detective Perry Masonite (Perry Mason), Maverick and Rick Masterson (Bat Masterson).

    • The boss' initials are B.J.

    Allusions (1)

    • Food Anonymous is a takeoff of Overeaters Anonymous.
