Myra Jenkins has quite a menagerie in her home: birds, a turtle, a monkey, a chameleon and on and on. She is quite devoted to them, usually at the expense of her husband Hermie. Their neighbor, George Bay,is always telling Hermie how much he misses his late wife and that since since she's died, all he ever does is travel, go fishing and drink beer. All of this sounds pretty good to Hermie who hatches a plan to get his wife a new pet that may not be very cuddly and lovable but may give him the way out that he desires. Little does Hermie realize the predicament he is getting himself into.Written by

This "AHP" episode from 1959 called "The Anniversary Gift" is one that's entertaining and it takes a twist and turn in the end as like many episodes the plan twist and turns on one central character. Myra Jenkins is a woman a married lady who's an animal lover with a house full of pets, like birds, dogs, cats, and even a monkey. Now the husband Hermie is tired of her ways and he wants to surprise her in a manner that could be deadly in the form of a snake that's full of poison. However this episode takes a twist and turn that's strange and different a surprise outcome that proves fear and doubt is often the thing in the end that is the final wrap. Overall well done episode with a twist.
