Episode Summary

Don't Marry a Frogman
Elly May continues to see Mark Templeton, the Navy Frogman, something Granny is not pleased with. She is very frightened that her granddaughter is dating someone who is “half-man, half frog.” After a date Elly has with Mark and a late night movie of Jethro's, Granny begins to have nightmares about this. Granny asks Miss Jane for advice, and Jane believes the whole thing is a nightmare. She tells Granny about Zeus, and after thinking Zeus was a mountain doctor, Granny realizes she could cure Mark of his sickness. She makes a potion to turn Mark into all man, but after Mark leaves his hat and coat behind and a frog jumps in them, she sees this and thinks the potion worked backwards. After she visits Jane for more advice and is told the story of the beautiful girl kissing the frog, turning him into a man, she tells Elly to kiss the frog. After Granny heads into the house, Elly puts the frog down, and when Mark returns to get his coat and hat, Elly kisses him. Granny sees this and believes Elly’s kiss did the trick.moreless
