In this two-reeler, Jimmy Jump wants to please both of his parents, but they disagree about everything. His father wants him to act more manly, although Jimmy gets his sensitivity from his mother.

This is the only Charlie Chase short I've seen so far, so I can't compare it to any others. It's an 18 minute flick that has a little of everything. It's full of comedy, romance, adventure, action, drama, and a happy ending.
Jimmy is the son of wealthy parents, and he gets caught up in trying to please them. More importantly, he wants to marry his girlfriend. Martha Sleeper plays the girlfriend and she steals the show in this two-reel short. She is funny and cute. The dance routine with Sleeper and Chase is hilarious. The lunch scene at the iron mill is funny too. There's a lot of goofy slapstick fighting too.
