An update of the series "Spin and Marty," which aired in 1955 as a segment of "The Mickey Mouse Club." Snooty, young Marty Markhamis is left in the care of family butler Jordan by his Paris-bound parents. Before mom and dad leave, they issue an edict: If the solitary Marty fails to make a friend within a few days, he'll be exiled to a dude ranch for the summer. Marty begins an unlikely friendship with Spin Evans, a young, mischievous and wildly imaginative amateur sleuth and son of Marty's apartment building manager. The boys become partners when they decide to investigate the creepy couple who are their new neighbors.
