Episode Summary

EDIT
Hair Raising Tale
AIRED:

Two con men pull a scam on Ralph as he sits in the park eating his lunch. One poses as the inventor of a miracle hair restorer and the other as an unscrupulous businessman trying to buy the formula. The second man "gets rough" with the smaller one and Ralph intervenes and chases off the larger man. The "inventor," Prof. Steinhardt, tells Ralph about his hair restorer and lets Ralph talk him into selling him exclusive rights to sell the formula in New York. Ralph races home for the money, but Alice won't give it to him because of his dismal track record with guaranteed get-rich-quick schemes. Norton hears the whole fight and comes downstairs for a ringside seat. Ralph figures he can get three hundred dollars against his life-insurance policy, and invites Norton to become his partner for a two-hundred-dollar investment. Norton says no--he's still smarting from the beating he took on the shoe polish that glows in the dark. He finally gives in--before he came down Trixie bet him a quarter he would--and KramNor's Miracle Restorer is born. Steinhardt arrives with the formula and the ingredients and Ralph and Norton begin mixing a batch. Mr. Mitchell, traffic manager at the bus company, drops by to tell Ralph he has to take another driver's shift. Ralph tells Mitchell--who's half bald--about KramNor's, but Mitchell is skeptical. Ralph offers him a free treatment that not only doesn't grow hair but kills most of what Mitchell had. Ralph and Norton go to the park to try to pull the scam on another sucker. The guy they pick isn't interested in the formula because he's got an invention of his own he's trying to market--an electric zipper. Ralph forgets all about unloading KramNor's and wonders how much money he can make selling zippers.
