Accident magnet Charley Chase plays a scoutmaster who leaves the city for the joys of Mother Nature, Betty Mack and a cool wet lake.
You've got to love the Charley Chase laugh. He kind of throws his head back, his mouth opens and he softly sighs, `haaaaa haaaaaaaaa!' Charley and his troop of trusting scouts navigate the wilds of city sidewalks and traffic jams until he literally falls for pretty Betty Mack. She nearly knocks him down while driving past him when she puts out her arm to signal a turn. But since she was holding an ice cream cone, Charley is soon eating out of her hand. (haaaa haaaaaaa) Multiple merit badge Charley tries to assist a traffic cop with his scoutmaster's whistle but all he seems to do is to cause car-crashing congestion. He soon decides maybe the troupe could get to the country quicker if they rented bicycles. The only problem is, he does not know how to ride! After many failed attempts, Betty gives Charlie a lift to the vast country and everything seems fine until Charley falls into the lake. Before he can get completely dry, someone or something causes him to fall in again and again. One cute bit has him sprung out of a hammock through the air and into the water. Another great gag is when Charley is trying to woo his girl by singing and playing an accordion after they both get soaked. The accordion, having entered the lake with him, now squirts the lovebirds in the face when he hits the high notes!
