A look at two modern fathers with their sons. In case one, dad takes his tyke with him for a game of cards with a bachelor friend. They put the boy to bed in the guest room then try to play. They boy spits his milk, plays with the window shade, dispatches a prize tropical fish, and breaks rare decanters. Dad never loses his temper, but the host does. Finally, just desserts. In case two, dad can't leave well enough alone and insists on visiting his son's new tree house. Does disaster await? Are there lessons for modern dads? Written by
Another funny entry in the O'Brien/Pete Smith "I Love ___, But" series with this one looking at a parents worst nightmare. A father (Dave O'Brien) takes his brat kid to a poker game hoping the child will fall asleep. Of course, since this is a comedy, that doesn't happen and soon the brat is destroying everything in the room. We then get a shorter second story where a father (O'Brien again) arrives home from a long trip only to notice that his son doesn't seem to care. The second story really doesn't work, which is probably why it seems rushed and cut down so there's really no use in paying too much attention to it. The real focus is the first story, which manages to get a few good laughs including an extremely funny one where the bachelor friend of the father is constantly going crazy because daddy doesn't punish the brat. The physical comedy is pretty bland as most of it happens off screen but Smith's narration is as good as always and will at least put a smile on your face. O'Brien is also good in his role with that never ending supply of facial expressions.
