  • Sqt. Carter challenges the retired fleet champ to a boxing match

    Sqt. Carter challenges the retired fleet champion to a boxing match, and Gomer and his friends are concerned for him. They stage phony sparring sessions, as Sqt. Carters sparring partners are made to look like they took a beating. A good episode overall,with some problems. In the sequence where Sqt. Carter and his future opponent throw jabs, and ask Gomer who has the better jab, it appears both men are throwing solid punches. Yet later at a workout Sqt. Carter seems incapable of throwing a decent punch. The result of the match (Sqt. Carter gets knocked out by his opponents first punch)is embarrasing considering Sqt. Carters iron man image. An ending where the fight was stopped because Gomer threw in the towel could have opened up more funny sequences. Like Sqt.Carters reaction.
