The Shirt Story was a fabulous episode. Even now each time I see it I laugh just like the first time. It’s classic. Everyone can relate to high priced products bearing the name of some fancy designer – and the millions of kids that want them. It was funny to watch how Cliff and Clair – even though you know they could have afforded it, wanted Theo to stay grounded and realize that $95 is absolutely too much to pay for one shirt that is to be warn by a high school student.
And it only got better once Denise offered her assistance to make an exact replica. Her design was anything but a Gordon Gartelle, and that alone was outrageous.
