Tuxedo clad lady killer Peter Jäger presents his nephew Kurt with four dancing girls in a big box for his 29th birthday. Clumsy and overweight, Kurt looks more like 49 and not just because of this surprise in the middle of the night. Yes folks, it's one of those Doris Day type comedies (complete with groovy wipes) made in the days when everything was bright and beautiful. Even when the guys are wearing gray suits, they seem to jump off the screen. Hansome Pete is adamant to get Kurt hitched. But pay attention: Kurt has a nerdy secretary pining away for him (plot alert) who obviously went to the Lucy Ball school of whining and crying. Every comedy like this needs one crazy idea, and here it comes: hire pretty nanny Sabine to fall in love with Kurt. Now all they have to do is go out in their red sports car (another mainstay in this genre) and find a boy.

Wouldn't you know it, pretty Peter knows a girl at a daycare center and they have no problem taking little Heinerle home with them. Maybe this girl had some kind of festering grudge after all, since she gave them the worst Dennis Der Menace of them all. In no time this little dictator is wearing a pint size Gestap- oh sorry, mailman's uniform and tying up Kurt's old bat of a house keeper Shadelmeier. Whahey! Mousy Fraulein Inge the secretary has borrowed some outfits from Audrey One and let her hair down. The next thing you know, Kurt is out with Inge while Peter is dating das Kindermadchen (not just because of his looks of course, because she thinks he is the father, not Kurt). They even enter a dance contest (as number 13) while his pompadour keeps growing bigger and Bril-creamier.

It's the same old story:nerdy guy wants pretty girl but must give her up for handsome man while he finds love with nerdy girl. The book of golden movie rules says only pretty people are meant for each other while fat, ugly and nerdy must make do with their own kind (however, I don't recall Quasimodo finding a nice hunchbacked girlfriend in the last chapters of his story).
