Charley Chase arrives home late from partying and quickly tries to sneak pass the wife (Katherine Grant) but she's already up and waiting. The two don't have time to get into a fight as they hear something out on the porch, which turns out to be a baby. The couple bring it in to raise as their own but they don't know what to do once he starts crying. The premise of this thing is actually better than the actual film but we do get some pretty funny gags scattered through. The best gag happens when Chase gets caught on a sewer top in the middle of a dark road when he sees headlights approaching. This gag has two different versions here and I won't ruin them but both are very funny. The stuff dealing with the never really gets any laughs as all the obvious jokes are gone for and the "reason" for them rushing out to get a doctor isn't that funny either and I'm sure most will see it coming. There's a final gag of them taking a glove and turning it into a nipple that is rather charming because it appears to have been shot on the fly and Chase's reaction to what the baby does is rather priceless as it seems real and not scripted.
