Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
After he buys a used car because it was pitched as once being owned by "Jon Voight," George becomes determined to verify whether or not it was indeed the famous actor Jon Voight. Meanwhile, Jerry decides to show up uninvited to a party hosted by Tim Whatley in hopes of running into a dentist, Kramer's attempts to help out a failing shoe-repair business go awry, and Elaine is subjected to a blaring Dixieland band when she goes to retrieve Mr. Pitt's ticket to hold a rope on the Woody Woodpecker balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Bryan Cranston, who would later go on to star as Hal, the father to the title character on FOX's Malcolm in the Middle, guest stars as Tim Whatley. Originally airing November 17, 1994, "The Mom & Pop Store" was the seventh episode shot for the show's sixth season, despite being the eighth one shown.
