Ollie is in bed next to the tray of milk bottles, while Stan is asleep in between him and the crying baby. Half asleep and not looking, Ollie "feeds" the milk bottle to Stan, thinking he is giving it to the baby. When the bottle is empty, Ollie gets another from the tray. As he moves it towards Stan, it is obvious the bottle is empty - the stripes on Ollie's pajamas can be seen through it. The camera cuts to include Stan, and now, as the bottle nears Stan's lips, it is full of milk. 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.
