Sam Drucker: How 'bout a dehydrated chicken?

Crazy Credits

As each Opening Credits concludes & just after the comical duo of Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor concluded their comical song, singing solo lines, there is one more "Shave and a Hair Cut: Six Bits" musical. As the musical concludes, (approximately five to ten seconds) Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor stand still as the melody plays. As "Six Bits" melody occurs they act like a living drawing of Grant Wood's "American Gothic" drawing. As "six bits" melody occurs, Eddie Albert quickly taps the ground twice, completing the Opening Credits.
