Dell Henderson's wife and daughter (the last played by Julie Bishop as she made the transition from child actor to ingénue) are off to Bermuda, leaving Dell with his mother-in-law. He objects to their abandonment and pretends to be crazy to forestall their leaving, when in walks Charley with their steamship tickets.
Dell was in a dozen of Charley's sound shorts -- he had directed Charley in one Sennett short in 1934 -- and frequently played crazy, leaving Charley to comic befuddlement. This one is clearly based on Charley's 1926 short, CRAZY LIKE A FOX and they get on like a comic house on fire. They sing a duet, they blow bubbles and if it's not one of Charley's best sound shorts, it's filled with Charley's usual fine comic bits.
