The Missing Sound of Music
3 July 2019 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Hillary's father, Mr. Brooke (early western character actor Raymond Hatton), has come from the country to take his daughter back home. Lou considers farm life to stay near his love interest. Lou overhears Mr. Brooke telling Hillary he promised a heartbroken Clem Porterhouse to bring her back to him. Mr. Brook admires Clem's vocal talents and says he won't let Hillary marry anyone without talent. Lou decides to take lessons from Mr. Field's brother Prof. Melonhead Fields' (also Fields) singing school. Prof. Melonhead teaches Lou the proper way to use the tones of his voice. Bud pushes Lou to go sing for Hillary and her dad, but they overhear Mr. Brooke say he doesn't care if Lou can sing, Clem can accompany himself on piano, which he prefers. Bud leads him to Mr. Bacciagalupe's music shop where they buy a record player to hide as Lou's piano playing. They go to Hillary's apartment to play in front of her and her father with Bud playing the record when he's told "all right" in a hilarious scene.

While episodes to this point in the series has had some great laughs and routines, this one has the plot to match it. A strong episode.
