Ozzie Turner; Pop Turner; Dip; Slick; Maestro Pagalini
Synopsis
Ozzie's father insists that he learns to play the flute like him (he played for Maestro Pagalini), his grandfather and great-grandfather. Dip's dog knocks Ozzie over when he is running because of a dog whistle that Slick is blowing and the flute falls out of his pocket. Slick makes fun of Ozzie so he claims that he is carrying it for a friend. He refuses to play it and be teased so after trying to lose it a couple of times he finally breaks it in half so he won't have to play it. Right after he breaks it Maestro Pagalini calls and wants Pop to play it that night so Ozzie turns to Slick for help and he lends him one. Ozzie takes it to his dad and when he starts to play it turns out that Slick's dog whistle is in it and dogs run in and ruin the concert. Pop is choking Ozzie when a critic comes up and says the dogs were a nice touch because they were playing "the overture of a dog's life". Maestro Pagalini asks Pop to play the flute whenever he is in town. As a reward Ozzie no longer has to learn the flute so he thanks Slick who is completely confused.

Synopsis
Brian Butler's uncle Harry calls Brian and three others together to let them know that he is leaving his money to the four of them equally. The next day Counsellor Kane calls the four back together and says that it appears that Uncle Harry committed suicide and that to get the money from his will the four of them have to spend a week together in his cliffside home. Robert goes ahead to get the house ready. When the others get there John Day is killed when he opens the door in what is apparently an accident. When the others get inside they find a burned body in the fireplace that has a buckle with R.D. on it so they expect that Robert is dead. Tom is killed when the couch they sit on falls through the floor. Brian figures out that everyone is being killed and they find the next trap. He and Pinky set it off and then hide to see what is going on. They find out that Counsellor Kane is working with Robert Day to get all of the money. He burned a hobo's body and put his buckle on it so everyone would think he was dead. Mr. Scarlet and Pinky stop him and rescue Uncle Harry, who is tied up in the basement.
