Buster Keaton began his career in vaudeville as a child, starring with his father Joe and mother Myra as The Three Keatons. This clever Educational two-reeler reunites the trio and adds Buster's sister Louise in the bargain. They play a family of hill folk that make moonshine but who pin their hopes on turning their oversized son Elmer (Dewey Robinson) into a champion wrestler. The big tournament held in Paducah finds Elmer in the ring with the lethal Bullfrog Kraus (Bull Montana). When Kraus starts getting too rough with Elmer, the entire family throws itself at the wrestler and annihilates him, winning the bout.
