Plot Synopsis by Hal Erickson
On this November 20, 1962 edition of The Red Skelton Hour, Red brings back one of his most famous radio characters: Junior Cavendish, aka "The Mean Widdle Kid." In the comedy sketch "Ten Baby Fingers and 12 Baby Toes", it is explained that Junior is larger than most seven-year-olds because of a miscalculation in the maternity ward. Driven to the brink of madness by Junior's destructive pranks, his mother (Janis Paige bundles the kid off to a child psychiatrist (Stubby Kaye). After the sketch, Janis Paige sings "Tea for Two", then joins Stubby Kaye for a rousing rendition of the Hope-Crosby number "Teamwork"; other musical highlights include the ensemble piece "Nursery Rock". The episode closes with The Silent Spot, in which Red plays a Pilgrim hunting for Thanksgiving dinner
