Behind on their rent, the Stooges
turn to babysitting for little tyke named "Junior" to earn
some extra cash to pay off their debts. Junior's mother leaves the
Stooges in charge, while she slips away for the evening. Early the
next morning, however, she returns to find Shemp in Junior's crib,
and Moe and Larry passed out on the floor and couch. Junior is nowhere
to be found and the woman immediately suspects her ex-husband as the
kidnapper. The boys, feeling a little responsible for Junior's strange
disappearance, choose to take matters into their own hands. They quickly
head over to Mr. Lloyd's apartment to find Junior and redeem themselves.
Upon finding Mr. Lloyd and the baby, they meet up with some resistance
and a fight ensues. It isn't long before mommy shows up and falls
back in love with her ex hubby. The Stooges are thanked for playing
sherlock, for rekindling the flame of love for the Lloyds, and for
finding Junior. All turns out for the best, and everyone lives happily
ever after. So happy, in fact, that Mrs. Lloyd begins to weep with
joy. Never fear...Junior, knows exactly how to fix that problem! He
quickly performs a little trick he learned from the Shempster.
This isn't the only short in which
the Stooges are watching a baby that somehow gets his hands on a
gun. In Three Loan Wolves, Larry takes a baby in for pawn and the
boys catch the baby sucking on a barrel of a pistol shortly thereafter.
