Bosko and Bruno find
an orphaned baby; hijinks ensue.
It's a snowy day as
Bosko and Bruno ice skate on a frozen pond. Bosko performs a few stunts,
while Bruno tries to avoid falling into patches of ice water. Unfortunately
Bruno does fall into the water, and Bosko skates over and frantically
starts shouting "What'll I do?! What'll I do?!". He peers into
the water and begins to sob. "Gee whiz, he's gone! He's gone!"
he shouts, but Bruno's head suddenly pops out of a nearby log. Bosko angrily
throws a stick at Bruno, but the dog obediently runs to fetch it. Upon
reaching the stick Bruno hears crying coming from a nearby basket. Bruno
tries to get Bosko to investigate, but he hesitates to open the basket.
When he does open it a baby pops out and begins to cry loudly. Bruno tries
to tickle the baby's chin, but the baby honks Bruno's nose, which Bosko
finds hilarious. "Here Bruno, let's take him home" Bosko says,
as he places the basket in Bruno's mouth. The baby continues to cry as
they skate home, despite Bosko's attempt to calm the baby by humming "Rock-a-bye
Baby". Now at Bosko's house, the baby lays in a cradle as Bruno rocks
him, while Bosko tries to get the baby to sleep by playing the violin.
This doesn't work, of course, and the baby continues to bawl. Bruno grows
impatient and goes to sit down, but unfortunately he sits on a hot stove.
His bottom now on fire, Bruno drags his rear on the floor then drinks
a bucket of water, finally putting the fire out. The baby has stopped
crying and is now laughing at the poor dog's ordeal. A second later the
baby is crying again, prompting Bosko to ask "What's the matter?
What's the matter?". "I'm crying for the carolines!" the
baby sings. Frustrated, Bruno storms off into the bathroom, slamming the
door and causing a cuckoo clock to fall on his head and taunt him. Bosko
finally calms the baby by playing the piano (pausing momentarily to make
some shadow puppets). Bruno puts on a lamp shade like a skirt and starts
dancing, and soon the baby is dancing too! Bosko slides across the room
on his rug in order to get his duck dinner to quack to the music. Bosko
dances right into a goldfish bowl which falls on his head, and Bruno and
the baby laugh at him as the cartoon ends.
