Harry Happy seems to live up to his name out in the world. He remains cheerful after people trample him to get on the bus. He stays smiling after a society lady's poodle, Poopsie, bites him on the leg. He even declares that it was his fault when a Cockney woman washing her windows accidentally drops her bucket of water on him. At home, however, he's a monster. His terrified wife races around the house bringing him his paper, lighting his pipe, shoveling coal into the stove when he's too cold, opening the window when he's too hot, closing it again when he feels a draft: all while he barks orders and shouts complaints. Finally, she's had enough and hits him with a frying pan, declaring she wants a divorce. Harry, afraid of losing his wife, goes to see a marriage counselor, and gets advice on how to change his life around. Written by
