Facing eviction from their apartment, The Three Stooges attempt to raise the rent money by becoming professional baby sitters. Their first client is the lovely Mrs. Joan Lloyd (Lynn Davis), who leaves the Stooges in charge of her precocious son Junior (David Windsor). Thanks to the Stooges' alertness and keen powers of observation, Junior is stolen right from under their noses. Realizing that the "kidnapper" is Mrs. Lloyd's estranged husband George, the Stooges race to the rescue--leading to a surprisingly touching finale (with a bit of the usual slapstick tossed in). The film's highlights include a running gag wherein Shemp stands on his head to stop Junior from crying, and an elongated routine involving "soap-bubble soup".
