"Stand-In Dad" is the fiftieth episode of Bonkers.
On Grampa Arnie's Ant Show, an evil executive, Two-Bits (voiced by Gilbert Gottfried) is swiping audience's pocket cash with a vacuum in hopes of finding his lost nickel. Kanifky sends Piquel undercover to host the show taking Marilyn to spend some quality time with her. Bonkers invites Marilyn to the show getting her snatched by the executive, but Piquel and Bonkers rescue her and arrest the executive (who, thanks to Lucky, reunites with his lost nickel).
- This episode marks one of the few cases that did not revolve around a cartoon character as Grampa Arnie Ant was an actor in a costume.
- Three Dudes and a Pony is a parody of Three Men and a Baby.
