Lloyd Hamilton and his trademark cloth cap star as a job-seeking bumpkin who engages in a series of misadventures at the local unemployment agency. Thanks to his encounter with an unfeasibly large sausage, he comes to the attention of Mrs. De Spout, a moneyed woman who hires him on the spot as chauffeur, butler, and baby-sitter for her addled family. It will come as little surprise that the results are disastrous. Once again, the newly paved streets of Hollywood serve as the primary location for the shoot, but there's a crude attempt at utilizing traveling mattes that is unintentionally hilarious: count how many times you see Earl's Cafe pass in the background!
