Slip (Leo Gorcey) and Sach (Huntz Hall)lose their jobs with a laundry company after they wreck the delivery truck. They talk Louie (Bernard Gorcey) into using the back room of his Malt Shop for a laundromat. Laurie Andrews (Anabel Shaw)leaves her baby wrapped in a bundle at the launderette to hide him from her neurotic aunts, Hope (Ida Moore)and Faith Andrews (Florence Auer),who have Laura committed to a sanitarium in a plot to gain the rich estate left by their brother to his grandson, Laurie's baby. Sach finds the baby and the Bowery Boys hold onto him because of Laurie's note that she will return. Meanwhile mobster "Bananas" Stewart (Gabriel Dell sees the baby and he and "Cherry-Nose" inform the aunts they will return the baby for the offered $25,000 reward. The aunts offer them an additional $25,000 if they will keep the baby hidden until after the will is read. Slip does not see this as a good plan, and begins to investigate the matter further.

Ida Moore and Florence Auer almost steal the movie as two sweet looking but actually grasping greedy elderly sisters trying to rob a baby of his rightful inheritance by having his mother committed to an insane asylum. Fortunately, the mother, played by Anabel Shaw, hides the baby in the laundromat attached to Louis' Sweet Shop and run by the ever enterprising (and usually unemployed) Terrence "Slip" Mahoney. The boys are up to their usual antics with Slip getting the best lines and Sach doing the most humorous routines. According to the grandfather's will, the baby or his Mom must be at the reading of the will for him to inherit. So the elderly sisters and their crooked partners want to keep the baby from the reading and the Mom in the asylum while the Bowery Boys want to get the Mom out of the asylum and make sure the baby inherits. The routine in the asylum where Slip gets Sach committed is a highlight. This one is a good entry into a long running series.
