Storyline

The Bumsteads decide to spend a safe and sane 4th of July at Aunt Hannah's ranch. After missing their station, they hitch a ride with a young couple who are getting ready to elope. The young man, Charlie, sprains his ankle, so Dagwood is enlisted to carry the girl off for him. Dagwood climbs into her father's window by mistake, and just as the old man is about to explode with rage, Baby Dumpling explodes a firecracker which turns out to be a stick of dynamite. As the action reaches its peak, a gusher of oil suddenly springs up in the yard. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

Great movie to get friends to watch a black and white film!
23 July 2001 | by (Alaska) – See all my reviews

This movie is to funny. Especially the part where Baby Dumpling takes the car for a ride. The characters are played perfectly and Baby Dumpling is too adorable . I know a lot of people who will not watch black and white films, this comedy is a great way to get them hooked!
