When some children try to poison the Captain's goat, it's Bobby Connelly who stops them long enough to let the Captain emerge, drive them off and make friends with Bobby. When the other kids tell their parents that he tried to kill them, a mob assembles.
Bobby Connelly was Vitagraph's child star in this period and this relatively innocent short subject is well handled by John S. Robertson, who would specialize in children's movies through the mid-thirties. He would cap his career with a couple of early Shirley Temple features. This is not a great movie, but for fans of the era, it's nice to see the pleasantly tinted copy preserved by the Royal Belgian Archive and posted by them on Youtube.
