Prudence's (Kim Richards) rooster Sebastian has finally learned to crow- in the middle of the night. The neighbors are quite upset. Day and night, the rooster continually crows. The professor tries to quieten it one night by placing a box over it, but accidentally lets it out of the cage. He chases it through the yard until it perches on top of a dairy truck and takes off. Ironically, he is stopped by a police officer for disturbing the peace. The effect it is having on the neighborhood leads the professor to declare Sebastian must find a new home. Hal (David Doremus) comes up with the idea of conditioning him, but a mishap causes Sebastian to be badly injured and the family rushes him to the vet. When the writers finally decide to inject more overt comedy into the series it seems to come at an inopportune time trying to be seen by the vet (Jerry Hausner, "I Love Lucy"). It pulls through and appears to be discontent wanting a hen. Prudence's father attempts to explain it to her. Will the crowing finally stop? I feel the awkwardness of the comedy in trying to be seen by the vet and a poorly-executed lesson detract from this episode.
