A proper ending was scripted, which had Mrs. Hardy returning with an adopted baby of her own. Stan Laurel's kept improvising so much he caused the film to go over schedule and over budget, leaving it with no real ending. This is a rare film for the duo, to have no resolution at the end. See more »

A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short. The Boys make THEIR FIRST MISTAKE when Stan convinces Ollie to adopt a tiny baby in order to placate his ferocious wife. Arriving home with the infant, the Boys discover that Mrs. Hardy has left him for good - leaving Stan & Ollie to look after the baby. This, of course, is something they are spectacularly ill-equipped to do.
Not much plot in this little film - plenty of sight gags, though. Stan's preparation to milk the baby is hilarious. That's Billy Gilbert as the process server & Mae Busch as Mrs. Hardy.
