video Just ask Josephine

March 11 is World Plumbing Day.

And look, here’s Josephine the Plumber (played by Jane Withers) with wee young Robby Benson. He looks like Ernie from My Three Sons here.

As a kid I found Josephine kind of scary, with her crazy eyes and grating voice and her fanaticism— like she’d think nothing of kidnapping you if she could collect the ransom in Comet. Watch out, little Robby Benson!
