In "Too Little to Live On," Ozzie and Harriet star as a husband and wife driven to despair by a crabby invalid.
Dave made a deal with his Uncle Ed that he and wife Myra would take care of him in his old age. In return, Uncle Ed promised to remember them in his will. After three years, that promise has worn thin. Uncle Ed is a constant, whiny burden, and they have no lives of their own.
One morning, Dave and Myra decide they can take no more. They want to be free of Uncle Ed, and the only way to achieve that, is to to make sure that he has an accident with his medications. Will it work? Or, has Uncle Ed been waiting for them to give that a try?
