Buddy Messinger is visiting on Eddie Pell's birthday, and a feast involving roast chicken, ice cream and a big chocolate cake is planned. With orders not to spoil their appetites, the boys try to leave room for the goodies in this episode in a series of shorts based on a Booth Tarkington story.
Few shorts remain from the Goldwyn library before the company's merger into MGM a few years later, and this is a special treat. Although the story is simple and obvious, its gentle good humor, familiar to fans of Booth Tarkington's series of "Penrod" books will be a pleasant few minutes for anyone who is inclined to see it.
There seems to have been about a dozen films in this series; only two are known to survive.
