Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Oliver (Eddie Albert) is convinced that he has been appointed the new circuit court judge. In truth, his nomination has been engineered not by the state, but by the Hooterville town council. Hoping to qualify for his lofty new honor, Oliver burns the midnight oil restudying his law books. He could have saved himself the trouble had he known that the only judicial assignment awaiting him is judging the "best apple" contest at the annual county fair.
