Storyline

Hughie is one of those fat, good-natured country boys, who is a rival for the band of a girl. His rival is a thin, lanky youth by the name of Zeb. Hughie falls from the good graces of the girl when he falls out of the apple tree trying to get an apple for the girl. Zeb happens along and, fortunately for him, happens to have an apple, which he hands to the girl. They leave Hughie sitting on the ground. A show hits town, starring one of those ham actors. Zeb gets a couple of tickets and takes the girl, Lucy, to see the show. Lucy flirts with the leading actor, who responds. Lucy gets Zeb to take her to the back door after the show. The actor comes out, he recognizes the girl and invites her to have an ice-cream soda. She accepts. They both exit, leaving Zeb in the same frame of mind as they left Hughie. Lucy falls for the cheap flattery of the actor, who is swelled up over his success and inveigles Lucy to elope with him. While all this is going on, Hughie, who has it in for Zeb for ...

It may not sound funny, but it is

This is a tale of the country, of pigs, of apple orchards, of tree climbing by a fat man. A limb of the tree breaks when the fat man is on it, and there is a fall of bulk and of pride. A maiden decides she likes better a slimmer fellow; she accepts an invitation of the successful rival to go to the theater. In front of the show house the fat man is bluffed and fails to fight. He goes to a "pug" and gets a lesson. He decides he is a scrapper. In the show the leading man makes a hit with the girl. After the show is over he walks away with her. He takes her on a cab ride. The fat man is the driver; this is the result of no accident, either. The horse is driven at a furious pace out into the country. The actor is pulled out of the cab; the fat man knocks him down; the fat man knocks him down twice. Then the matinée idol fights. But what's the use? The fat man falls on him; the stage man has just enough strength left to make a getaway across the fields. Fatty and the girl get up on the driver's seat and return; the poor actor walks the ties. It may not sound funny, but it is. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
