Bumbling high schooler Henry Aldrich (Jimmy Lydon) finds himself in hot water once more when he offends school principal Mr. Bradley (Vaughan Glaser). If Henry doesn't put Bradley in a good mood immediately, he won't be allowed to graduate with the rest of his class. Reasoning that Bradley needs a little romance in his life, Henry and his pal Dizzy (Charles Smith) try to arrange a marriage for their sourpussed principal. The most likely matrimonial candidate turns out to be a garrulous spinster known to one and all as "Blue Eyes" (the incomparable Vera Vague). But Henry and Dizzy had better smooth the course of True Love in a hurry: if he doesn't graduate from high school with honors, young Mr. Aldrich will lose a $5000 inheritance. Can there be any more complications in this 65-minute comedy? There sure can: a brassy blonde (Barbara Pepper) has also set her cap for poor Bradley!
