Teeny, Mr. Oldtimer, Wally Wimple, Mrs. Uppington, Harlow Wilcox, and even Fibber’s closet are all there in this brand new Fibber tale! Duffy’s Tavern: “If We All Talked Like Allen Jenkins” Archie, Finnegan, Eddie, Miss Duffy, and all the gang are back “where the elite meet to eat” in this first new Duffy's Tavern outing since 1952. Archie tries to lure the Shriner’s Convention to the tavern with promises of big stars he can’t deliver, not knowing the real Warner Brothers movie actors Edward G. Robinson and Allen Jenkins are hiding in the kitchen.Show more
