After a guitar rendition of "Jerusalem" at the Cardiff Rooms in Libya, an art critic joins Marge and Janet in lunching on a few masterpieces. A bather performs a striptease, much to the dismay of the Colonel. A Sergeant-Major demonstrates the proper self-defense techniques when dealing with an assailant armed with fruit. A tobacconist and a bookseller are enmeshed in international intrigue when the former asks for a copy of "An Illustrated History of False Teeth." And Arthur Lemming of the British Dental Association makes a surprise appearance. Carol Cleveland, Dick Vosburgh, and Katya Wyeth are featured on "Owl-Stretching Time," which first aired October 26, 1969.
