Dangerous When Wet

Synopsis: The health conscious, dairy-farming Higgins family begin each day with an invigorating swim. One day, traveling health-tonic salesman, Windy Weebe, comes to town and suggests they could swim the English Channel. Sponsored by "Liquapep" and coached by Windy, the family arrive in Europe. There it is decided that daughter Katie is the only one strong enough to enter the contest. But while she should be focused on the difficult and risky task ahead, Katie is pursed by dashing Frenchman, André Lanet... This comedic musical is well remembered for the scene when Katie dreams she is swimming with cartoon characters Tom & Jerry!

I wonder how much the government

would pay us not to raise potatoes.

Oh, stop fretting, will you?

We got plenty to eat...

...lots of fresh air

and a good roof over our heads.

Well, a pretty good one.

Pa, let's face the facts.

The milk sales are way down,

the cheese is way off...

...the fences need mending,

the barn needs painting...

...and you know that milking machine

should be in a museum.

Now, just a minute. Who won first prize for

being the healthiest family in this county?

We did. And that's all we've got.


Look at my triceps, Pa.

Pa, we've gotta put this farm

on a scientific basis.

All right, all right.

From now on, we all knuckle down.

That goes for everybody.

We start today.

- Good.

- "Saturday afternoon.

- The Liquapep Health Show. Free."

- Health show? Where?

"Saturday afternoon." That's today.


If you are desirin' a new vitamin

To make you get fat

Or to make you get thin

To put the old energy back in your step

You'll get your kicker quicker

Drinkin' Liquapep

Thank you. Now, I'd like to present,

with your kind permission...

...the world's most perfectly-formed man,

the one and only, Hercules.

There he is.

Folks, would you believe

that just one year ago today...

...this magnificent specimen was weak,

scrawny, run-down?

Well, he was.

But then he made a wonderful discovery.

Tell them what it was, Hercules.

- Liquapep.

- Thank you very much.

Flex for the folks, Hercules.

Isn't that something, folks?

Okay, Herc, get with it.

Now, folks, while Hercules goes among you

passing out free samples of our product...

...I would like to read a free, unsolicited

testimonial from a satisfied customer.

"Dr. Colonel Cassius Carver,

New York City.

Dear sir, before taking Liquapep,
