Synopsis by Hal Erickson

While her grandpa is recuperating from an accident, 8-year-old Patsy O'Day (Priscilla Moran) stumbles across an abandoned baby. She "adopts" the kid on the spot, hiding it from the authorities. An evil landlady tries to turn Patsy and the baby over to the orphanage officials, leading to a merry chase throughout the city. The plot is resolved when Patsy's grandfather Michael (William V. Mong) is released from the hospital, whereupon he immediately and legally adopts both children. No Babies Wanted was also released under the title The Baby Mother; by either name, it failed to transform Priscilla Moran into a female Jackie Coogan.
