Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Buddy (Morey Amsterdam) has an opportunity to become head writer for "The Dan Howard Show," but Alan Brady won't release him from his contract. To help their pal fulfill his dreams, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) and Sally (Rose Marie) write a nasty letter to Alan and sign Buddy's name to it. The plan works only too well, and before long Rob and Sally are trying to cook up a scheme to get Buddy back. This is the episode in which Mel Cooley (Richard Deacon) shows up with a full head of hair -- temporarily!
