| An okay Joe McDoakes except for the stupid Indian jokes
Joe McDoakes is America's most tired businessman but he's finally going on vacation. His wife tells him that vacation in the backyard was okay during the war but no more. Joe tells her that he doesn't want to go to the mountains or the seashore but to spend his vacation in the backyard in a hammock and finish reading Anthony Adverse. But Joe's wife sends him to a department store with a coupon for outdoors paraphernalia. Of course, the smarmy salesman ends up selling Joe all kinds of things he doesn't need like a tent, a raft, a shotgun, a canoe etcetera and an Indian guide. Oh, a Brooklyn Indian. So off they go on a camping trip – pulling the dog's house with the dog in it holding a lantern (another purchase at the department store) in his mouth. The Indian guide part wasn't funny at all but the rest was including the ending which involves a radio quiz show. An average entry into the series.
