    Vic and Sade – Moving To Peoria. 460725

    Vic and Sade – Moving To Peoria. 460725

    Rush tries to tell Sade about the exploits of his hero, 3rd Lt Stanley, and reads reading from his book. Such descriptive displays of emotion on the part of the damsel in distress. Instead, Sade is rescued by Rush talking about his friends, and their activities. Vic arrives to ask about phone messages, and Sade wonders what’s bothering him. He’s all flustered about a big move to Peoria. The kitchenware plant is packing up and moving all its operations there. Vic is so nervous that he can’t find the words to tell Sade all about the move. A chain of characters passing by the water cooler provided the pieces for Vic to put together to figure it all out. Rush tries to second guess the clues, but Sade isn’t so sure Vic is right. Uncle Fletcher enters as the phone rings. Can Vic keep the secret, or will it get blabbed all around town?

    Fletcher and Rush are alone while Fletcher rattles off lists of people he knows. Rush seems less than enthused, and Sade manages to change the topic back to moving to Peoria. What do Rush and Fletcher think about the topic? Rush tries to correct Fletcher’s mistaken geography. Vic is so thrilled about the move, he’s ready to go right now. Can Sade settle him down? Is there any grounds to the rumor mill at the office? The telephone’s ringing, and the jumpy nerves of Vic are contrasted by the apathy of Fletcher. Harry visits, and Vic again resolves to try to keep the secret about the big move. Vic has gone so far as to have bought tickets to Peoria already, and Harry has delivered them.

    Sade has had enough and won’t rest until she gets to the bottom of the mystery. Mr Colorston from the office comes by to see what had Vic worked up, and make sure there’s no family problems. Sade figures its time to call Mr Rubish himself to get the facts straight. Is the plant really going to move? The rumor is true, but Sade learns that there’s nothing to worry about. At least not for 30 years.

    Note: Lot’s of running gags, like Vic jumping to conclusions, and his outlandish over reacting. In shorter episodes though, Sade has played detective and arrived to the truth in much more efficient ways. Still a pretty good show of that classic ridiculous behavior, and Fletcher doesn’t hog it by reciting too many lists of his crazy acquaintences.

    Vic and Sade – Vic The Irish Policeman. 460711

    Vic and Sade – Vic The Irish Policeman. 460711

    Sade, Rush and uncle Fletcher relax on a warm Summer day, in the living room as Fletcher shares crazy details about people he once knew. Strange advice, people who consistently lose elections, and more. Vic comes home early in a perky mood, and promises to kiss Sade. What’s the big news that Vic’s bursting to share? He tells why he has a policeman’s uniform with him, in his typical ridiculous fashion of course. He has also arranged for the living room to be used as police headquarters for the afternoon. A famous high class desperado is on the loose, and for an hour or so, the police will move their headquarters to Sade’s living room. Vic has even been deputized, and has the power to arrest people. The chief arrives as Vic gets into character as an Irish policeman.

    Uncle Fletcher continues to monopolize the conversation with more stories of people he knew. The chief shares how he might otherwise be taking it easy if it weren’t for the desperado on the loose. The phone rings, but Vic can’t decide whether to answer it with his Irish dialect or not. Mr Sprawl arrives, looking for his daughter Florence, but hides under the davenport in terror at the sight of the crowd in the house. The matter has Sade upset with Vic for his intrusions with the police.

    Fletcher is still bragging about all his friends from all over, the phone rings and Fletcher takes a call from Rishigan Fishigan from Sishigan Michigan. Though terrified, Sprawl returns with the desperado. He wants to turn himself in.

    Note: Wierd. Although full of running gags, this one is more like a sitcom than anything done thus far. I don’t think Paul Rimer was quite in his element in the 30 minute format. The gags are OK, but the story could have been developed a little better, or brought to the point and wrapped up more effectively.

    I could stand fort a lot less of Fletcher telling his goofy stories, more story development of the police and the bad guy on the prowl. I like the way the timid Mr Sprawl is the one who nabbed the bandit, but how, and why it happened could have received more attention.

    Not one of my favorite stories, but it has potential. \

    Vic and Sade – Decoration Day Parade. 370528

    Vic and Sade – Decoration Day Parade. 370528

    Vic comes home with news about big shots who want him to be in charge of the Decoration Day parade, but there’s a conflict. He has to make a business trip to Chicago at the same time, and there won’t be anyone else to carry out the parade arrangements. What’s the nbig deal? Why won’t everybody just line up at the cemetary, and march through town like they always do? Vic may be taking his self importance a little too far, but he doesn’t see it that way.

    When the Mayor and others offer alternate measures, and call Vic by the wrong name, he see’s it all as an attempt to overthrowe his authority. Parades are of high importance to Vic and his overkill in arranging them. Will there even be a prade without Vic?

    PS: Decoration Day was the original name for what is now called Memorial Day. Since it honored the fallen soldiers in our country’s wars, it often began or ended at the cemetary. Speeches and picnics accompanied the event as the entire community came together for the honors.

    Vic and Sade – Engine Cab Ride To Chicago. 400503.

    Vic and Sade – Engine Cab Ride To Chicago. 400503.

    In the living room of the small house halfway up the next block, Sade tells how she pulled some strings to get Vic a special ride to Chicago. Though the idea may sound adventuresome to Vic in certain circumstances, he doesn’t relish the thought of a 140 mile ride standing up in the cab of a locomotive. It’s a business trip, and Vic would rather be relaxing with the rest of the passengers.

    Can his neighbor, Mr Donahue even let him ride in the cab legally? Would this scheme lower Vic to the status of being a hobo? Poor Vic, though Sade tried to save him a few bucks, and enjoy an adventure to boot, he just isn’t happy with the inconveniences. Someone may have to eat crow if Vic backs down from Mr Donahue’s grand offer.

    Vic and Sade – Prize Clock. 420213

    Rush enjoys discussing a few of Vic’s friends with Sade. Vic enters and is in a particularly sunny disposition after a victory with Ike Nicefur. Feeling on top of the world, an electric clock gets Vic’s attention, but Sade warns him not to touch it.

    Sade has to leave the room to tend to other matters, but will Vic be a good little boy, and keep his hands to himself? Rush is left in charge of baby sitting Vic, and keepping the electric clock safe from his mechanical tinkering.

    Temptation grows, but Sade returns to keep Vic in line. Still, he puts in his best arguments to have just one little crack at tweaking that poor little old clock.
