UNRATED • 11m • 2018 • Special

"The Dummies" episode of MACK AND MYER FOR HIRE, an American comedy series for kids that aired in syndication from 1963 to 1964, and re-run well into the 1970s. In the tradition of the Three Stooges, handymen Mack and Myer fouled up every job in slapstick style. The show starred Mickey Deems and Joey Faye, and was produced by Trans-Lux Television in New York. Each episode was approximately 12 minutes long, and the show was filmed using a two-camera layout. Over 100 episodes were produced during its only year in production. (The series was produced by Sandy Howard and directed by Edward Sutherland, who had also directed film comedies with Laurel and Hardy and W.C. Fields.)
