Mabel Normand and Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle are a married couple in this Keystone quickie. After a fight caused by his flirtation with the maid, Fatty and Mabel go for a walk through the park (actually Echo Park in Los Angeles, a frequent location for the Keystone troupe. The park still exists today). In typically convoluted Keystone fashion, they get mixed up with another couple, the cops get involved when they believe that the "No Spooning" law has been violated, and both Mabel and the other woman's husband wind up in the clink. An amusing, if extremely dated, statement on morality in the 'teens.
