Episode Summary

It's time for Grandma to move to the county home. It seems newly-married son-in-law Dan has squandored all her savings and the new wife doesn't want the old woman around. As she's packing her things, she gives Chubby some useless bonds to make a tail for his kite. A letter arrives, which Dan gets his hands on. After "accidentally" breaking Grandma's glasses, he reads the letter to her, stating that the bonds are useless. It turns out that the letter says the opposite, that the bonds are worth plenty of money, but by the time Grandma realizes this, Dan's already chasing down the kite, while the gang chases after him.moreless

    • NOTES (7)

      • This episode was shot probably around the early spring of 1931.

      • The kite flying sequence is in a vacant lot on Overland Avenue, between Regent Street and Francis Place, in the Palms District of Los Angeles. The property is now occupied by an apartment building. Shown in the background are several houses, including 3650, 3658 and 3668 Overland Avenue.

      • Among the Leroy Shield tunes heard in this episode are "Good Old Days," "On To The Show," "Prelude," "Instrumental," "Miser," "Wishing," "You Are The One I Love," "The Villain," "Sliding" and "Hide And Go Seek."

      • This was the last episode in the series to feature Allen "Farina" Hoskins, who had been in the series since "Fire Fighters" (episode no. 2), and appeared in 105 episodes up to this point. He would return for a reunion episode a couple of years later, however. Also bowing out at this point were Mary Ann Jackson (after three years), Norman "Chubby" Chaney (after two years) and Shirley Jean Rickert (after about half a year). No other film in the series served as the last for as many regulars. Debuting in this episode was Dickie Jackson, the real-life little brother of Mary Ann, who would serve as a peripheral kid for the next couple of years.

      • This was the second and final appearance for Margaret Mann, who played Grandma in this film as well as in "Helping Grandma" (episode no. 103).

      • The acrobatics performed by Grandma (actually stunt-double David Sharpe) is repeated from "Ask Grandma" (episode no. 38), as is the reading of the suspense novel and the boxing match. Other boxing episodes include "The Champeen" (no. 9), "Boxing Gloves" (no. 91) and "Glove Taps" (no. 152).

      • No, the actor who plays Dan is not THAT James Mason.
