The inimitable Grampy runs for Mayor, with Betty Boop singing his praises. Narrowing winning the election by one vote (out of 2,000,005!), Grampy arrives at City Hall, only to be confronted by angry constituents with a list of rhyming grievances. Facing the possibility of being impeached before he can even take the oath of office, Grampy dons his thinking cap and inventively solves such problems as a "bridge to nowhere" and a dilapidated housing development--with time left over to install liquor bars in all the drinking fountains and to combinine the subway and elevator systems. And in true pro-environmental fashion, he even comes up with a solution for the foul weather plaguing his city.
