A goat escapes from a pet shop, and the owner reports the missing goat to the police. Laurel & Hardy have spent their last dime on donuts, and Laurel feeds his donuts to the goat. The goat follows them everywhere, and they can't get away from it. They sneak the goat into their bedroom, under the nose of their mean landlord (Edgar Kennedy), and it eats the wallpaper and the furniture. The goat stinks, so they attempt to give it a bath, but the landlord catches them with the goat, and there is a water-throwing melee at the end. This short was the last silent film that Laurel and Hardy made, although some of their early talkie films were released in silent versions. The story was later remade with a dog in Laughing Gravy and with a monkey in The Chimp.
