|May 27, 1961  "The Case
of the Grumbling Grandfather"
David Gideon is in deep. His lying girlfriend has convinced him to raise $10,000 for her, supposedly to pay off her punch-drunk husband. But when hubby turns up stiff, David is arrested for murder. And why not? He was seen fighting with the soon-to-be-deceased man, who, it turns out, was most likely holding some damaging info on David's family. Despite these obstacles, and the fact that the matter goes beyond the usual preliminary court hearing, Perry takes the case.
Gavin MacLeod (of "McHale's Navy," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," and "The Love Boat") makes an appearance in this episode.
