In The Good Old Summertime released July 29, 1949. Buster plays Hickey, a clerk in his uncle Otto Oberkukegon's (played by S Z "Cuddles Zakall) store. Buster was a gag writer on the film so Director Robert Leonard asked him the best way to accidently break Otto's violin,  After hearing Buster's instructions he decides Buster is the only one who can do the stunt correctly, so Buster is given the part of Hickey his first credited role  (and last) with MGM since being a featured performer.
