Wilbur is a young man whose dream is to become a great barber, but for now, he's working just as an assistant, at a hotel's barber shop. When one day he gets involved (by mistake) in some big robbery, he is forced to disguise himself as a 12 year old boy, so that he can get away from his persecutor. Written by

Actress Diana Lynn appeared in the original film, The Major and the Minor, as Lucy, the science-obsessed teenage sister of Pamela (Ginger Roger's on-screen nemesis). Thirteen years later, Diana Lynn starred in that film's remake, You're Never Too Young, this time as Nancy Collins (a female version of the role originally played by Ray Milland). See more »
I was watching this movie and suddenly thought it seemed very familiar!! I then realized it was a re-making of the 1942 movie "The Major and the Minor" starring Ginger Rogers! There is a sub-plot that is different,but many of the scenes are identical except for the fact that now it is Jerry Lewis playing a 12 year old boy instead of Ginger as a 12 year old girl.Another pairing of Lewis and Martin-lightweight but enjoyable.
