EDIT
Tired of repairing the rickety generator that Haney sold him, Oliver checks on the status of his electricity. Learning that his application was never mailed, Oliver decides to deal with the power company in person. He finds that nothing in Hooterville is done simply--or correctly; he ends up with a meter that runs even when it's disconnected and another pole by the bedroom window.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Lawlor, the installer, puts in the power meter so that Peter Greeter, the meter reader, can check their power usage. Unfortunately, the new meter is faulty and its wheels spin even though it's not connected to electricity.

      • As Oliver holds an extension cord and prepares to plug his home into the new power outlet, the film freezes. A voice-over credits the Douglases getting electricity with the great Northeast Blackout of November 9, 1965, the infamous day thirty million people were plunged into darkness. As the film resumes, sparks fly from the outlet and the words "Double Drick" appear on-screen.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • As the Douglases' generator sparks and sputters, words like "Drick" flash on the screen. This is a takeoff on the then-popular ABC-TV series Batman. When the Dynamic Duo would engage in fights, words like "Pow" and "Thwack" would appear on-screen to punctuate the action.
