Synopsis by Hal Erickson
He's a Cockeyed Wonder stars Mickey Rooney as the title character. Try as he might, Freddy Frisby (Rooney) can't succeed at anything. Things take an upward turn when Freddy inherits the estate of his uncle, a famed magician. Armed with all sorts of legerdemain, Freddy begins giving shows at local businesses, assisted by his girl friend Judy Sears (Terry Moore). While performing at a factory, Freddy and Judy are framed for a payroll robbery by a gang of thieves. By using his bag of tricks to the utmost, Our Hero clears himself and Judy then prepares to round up the bad guys. Nobody seems willing to play straight in He's a Cockeyed Wonder--certainly not William Demarest as the heroine's father and Douglas Fowley and Mike Mazurki as the head crooks.
