Trucks for Tykes

Jack and Karen innocently sing a jingle for a TV commercial which proves to be so catchy that they are not able to stop singing it for days.





  • Nick Offerman makes his second guest appearance. He previously appeared as the plumber Karen makes out with in the episode Moveable Feast.
  • The song Jack and Karen could not get out of their heads sing "Trucks for Tykes, Trucks for Tykes. Give your truck to Trucks for Tykes. You'll help Tom and Sue and Chuck, so give a darn and give a truck! Vroom!"
