13. Consumer Probe
Original Airdate: December 11th, 1976
A morbid jewel of the Michael O'Donoghue era. Dan Aykroyd was great at playing slimeballs and mustachioed hucksters, and perhaps his greatest, sleaziest creation was crooked toy manufacturer Irwin Mainway (an in-joke reference to Irving Mainway convenience stores, popular in Aykroyd's native Canada). Mainway Toys seemed to make products not just with a disregard for children's safety but with the intent to harm, from the Pretty Peggy Ear-Piercing Set to Bag O' Glass, with its charmingly direct warning label "Kid! Be careful, broken glass."
