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.

The Bowery Boys open up a laundry service in the rear of Louie Dumbrowski's sweet shop and come across a bundle of joy that's been left there by its mom. Turns out the kid is the heir to a fortune and a group of greedy folks would love to get their hands on him. This is a typical entry in the series with most of the good lines and jokes coming in the first half of the picture. Contains a morbid moment where a doctor tries to convince authorities that the mother's crazy and gives her an unnecessary injection.
Standard Bowery Boys fare.
