On the night he is to play his drums in his kindergarten orchestra, Little Ricky (Richard Keith) is suddenly paralyzed with stage fright -- mainly because his parents and the Mertzes had been so nervous themselves just before the performance. Hoping to help her son overcome his fear of appearing in public, Lucy (Lucille Ball) persuades Ricky to let Little Ricky play a drum solo at Club Babalu. She then attempts to mollify the boy by using "reverse psychology," pretending that she doesn't want him to perform -- a strategy that nearly sabotages the poor kid a second time.
