Dejected Vance proposes racy format change; puts the "Ho" in "Guestward Ho!"

 

Now THERE'S the Mertz spin-off that would have worked! "GUESTWARD HO'S" !!

The Mertz's inherit a "dude range" in Nevada and quickly discover the source of their cash flow. When many of the regulars know Ethel on a first-name basis, Fred figures out that shaving a year off her age wasn't the only secret she kept from him and puts her in charge of the "staff" ,renaming the place "Mertz's Maidens". And, after retrieving his turn-of-the-century wardrobe from the trash, Fred installs himself as greeter. "You got the know-how and I got the name", Fred reasons. Ethel quickly tires of doing all the work and wants to switch positions, giving this tip to Fred "When your face gets redder than their meat, they're done!"

First episode: "Visit From the Chicken Inspector"
