THE NEW HIT SITCOM COMING TO TELEVISIONS IN YOUR HOMES.
Widower Charles Scribner missed his wife dearly since she died 6 months ago, and felt like his home wasn’t truly a home without a female presence to cook, clean, and iron for him.
So, he went to his local orphanage and asked for the most reasonably priced little girl.
The only girl they had available within his price range, he was told, is half of a set of twins— with the other being a boy. But he did not want both of them; boys are nothing but trouble, after all.
The orphanry offered to throw in the boy for free even, but he wouldn’t hear of it! The director of the orphanage gulped, nodded, and agreed… they needed the money to cover the losses in the gambling and numbers racket most orphanages are a cover for, and he didn’t want to lose the sale.
So, tiny orphan Alice Buttons concocts a scheme to hide her twin brother Arnie— who happened to be her Siamese twin brother, attached at the shoulder. He had the left arm, she had the right and the legs. Surgery was possible but “cost prohibitive” according to the Director of the Orphanage… so to bring him with her, Alice wrapped up her Siamese twin in a billowy blouse and decided to pretend it was just a cancerous tumor that snores when it sleeps and has allergies in the Spring. The perfect crime!
If Alice and Arnie can keep up this ruse for the next 14 years, they’ll be set!
But as they walk up to their future home and see stern Mr. Scribner waiting for them, he looks suspicious… eeks!
