Bobby's love for his mamma and papa is so great that he even fears they might die and be taken from him. On the other hand, he is his parents' only thought and care. However, some time later a new baby arrives at the home, and Bobby is told that the stork at the park brought it. It isn't long before he realizes that the baby is everything now, and he is "left out in the cold." This treatment fires the youngster with jealous rage, and remembering the story of the stork, takes up the baby from its crib, puts it in a basket and carries it out to the stork's cage in the park, exclaiming. "Here, Mr. Stork, take your old baby, we don't want it." Meantime, his parents are wild with anxiety over the disappearance of the baby, believing it to have been kidnapped. Their fears are relieved later by the appearance of the park officer with Bobby and the baby. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
