Gunther Given The Bird
24 November 2011 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

We discover Captain Block has a pet parrot at home and is ga-ga over him. He just loves the bird and talks to it like a little baby. He takes it on vacation, which drives his wife nuts. Other that that, there is one thing wrong: the parrot won't talk, and it's driving Block nuts. Fifteen years and he can't get the bird so say anything.

Finally, when his wife flat refuses to go vacation with the parrot again, Block loans the bird to Gunther and Lucille Toody. At first, nothing much happens despite Gunther's best efforts. Finally, in frustration, he yells "I hate Captain Block."

Now, the bird talks and imitates what he just heard!

Toody is panicking. He has to un-do what just happened before Capt. Block comes home from vacation.....and what happens afterward is very funny. The scenes in the pet shop are especially good.
