Joe Priggle (Joe DeRita) checks into the Shady Shelter Rest Home, and over a jug of applejack, tells the manager (Vernon Dent) his tale of woe and the reason he hates eggs... Answering a lonely hearts message written on an egg, home appliance inventor Joe marries Florobelle (Dorothy Granger) and then discovers that she has an adolescent brat for a son. Stepson Rudolph (Norman Ollestad) turns Joe's home life into a battleground, bringing home everything from a bow & arrow to a miniature cannon as toys. Joe's washing machine invention, which he hopes to sell to Mr. Collins' manufacturing company, becomes Rudolph's latest plaything, with Collins and his board members on the receiving end of the consequences.

A remake of Andy Clyde's Columbia short KNEE ACTION (1937).

This solo short is one of four that Joe DeRita made for Columbia prior to his coronation as a Stooge. In this film, Joe gets married, and goes on a honeymoon. The only problem is that her son tags along, too! This kid is an absolute punk by all definitions! Throughout the film, he does everything in the world to aggravate Joe, with success, including shooting him where it counts! He even costs Joe a patent for a contraption he has invented by stealing ball-bearings out of it! All the while, the mother defends everything her son does! This short is a perfect commercial for birth control!
