Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the first episode of a two-part story, the Evans household prepares to throw an 18th birthday party for son J.J. (Jimmie Walker). A crisis arises when the local art-supplies store refuses to provide a present for J.J. on credit. But still worse news is to come: the luckless J.J. has been arrested on suspicion of robbing a liquor store. Former Our Gang child star Stymie Beard appears as Monty.
