Jim Varney stars in this comedy as Carl Banks, a famous counterfeiter who has escaped from prison. However, while he eludes the Police, the FBI and the Mafia, he manages to get caught in a trap 10-year-old Timmy Taylor has set in back yard. Figuring it would be a lot more exciting than summer school, Timmy keeps Carl captive in his tree house, hoping to at least hold him in stir over the weekend so he can bring him to school for show and tell on Monday. But hiding an escaped fugitive turn out to be more work than he expected. Also stars Tom Bosley and Debby Boone.
