Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack Takes Beavers To The Fair
AIRED:
In this color episode, Jack loans each of the Beverly Hills Beavers fifty cents when he takes them to the fair. Things start badly when Jack has to be shot down after holding too many balloons. He also gets knocked out on the merry-go-round. He impresses everyone when he swings the mallet and knocks the bell off the top of the meter; it didn't hurt that one of the Beaver sticks him in the butt with a pin. Mr. Kitzel, who's manning the hot dog concession, tells Jack he's a utility player who fills in wherever needed at the fair. They run into him later dressed in a gorilla suit, and introducing the Sportsmen who masquerade as trapeze act the Five flying Finnegans. Jack steps into a cage with a lion, thinking the lion is Mr. Kitzel in another costume. It isn't. On the way out, they pass a hula girl show. The boys want to go in and watch, but Jack says no--until he learns the dancing girl is Mr. Kitzel.moreless
