Although this comic short from the Hal Roach studios stars Glenn Tryon -- who had his own series -- Oliver Hardy (not yet teamed up with Stan Laurel) gets almost as much screen time. Casper Crum (Tryon) works in the baby section of a department store, and, after dealing with young children all day, he has no desire to have anything to do with them in his off hours. After a particularly trying day (while relieving the woman in charge of the nursery, the children have run amok), he is horrified to find an abandoned toddler (Jackie Hanes). Wanting nothing to do with the tot, Crum leaves him in the back seat of a car. Unfortunately, the car belongs to his boss and neighbor, Hector (Hardy), and Crum is faced with the kid once again when Hector and his wife (Martha Sleeper) adopt it. Hector and his wife invite Crum and his missus (Vivien Oakland) on a picnic. The kid gets into all sorts of trouble, and Crum is glad to return home, away from the babies -- and then someone abandons twins on his doorstep.
