The Love Boat: Cindy/Play by Play/What's a Brother For?

Melissa Sue An­derson, of "Little House" guest stars as a modern-day Cin­derella hassled by a mean stepmother. Other skits involve Chris George, as a chauvinistic sportscaster, and Patrick Wayne, as dis­abled man who unfairly dominates his brother. In CINDY, Cindy Jerome (Ms. Anderson) boards the ship with her stepmother (Ms. Jones) and obnoxious stepsisters. (Rhonda Bates and Lila Kent). Gopher (Fred Grand) finds out that Cindy has a beautiful voice and tries to have her audition for Preston Maddox (Frank Sinatra, Jr.), a famous bandleader who is on board. However, Gopher's plans backfire and Julie (Lauren Tewes) almost lays an egg at the Halloween party. In PLAY BY PLAY, Christopher George and Lynda Day George portray Bud Pomeroy and Peggy Rossmore, sportscasters on the same television show. They are rivals who learn more about each other when she challenges him to a battle of the sexes. In WHAT'S A BROTHER FOR?, guilt and love make a man (Tom Hallick) the caretaker for his handicapped brother (Patrick Wayne), until a loving young woman (Joan Van Ark) sets them both straight about their respective lives.
