Anthony "Tony" Campanaro in front of his fruit and vegetable stand


Anthony Campanaro Fruit And Vegetables is a local sidewalk grocer located in the Tenement District of Greenpoint. Anthony is the Italian owner and proprietor of the place. He gets annoyed with Officer McManus coming along and taking bananas without asking. After McManus loses his job, Officer Mac asks Tony to straighten up the fruit and vegetable stand to look nice. After Joe Cobb becomes a junior police officer, Tony lets him sample a few bananas, but when Joe doesn't know when to stop, Tony wises up and strings the bananas up to keep them out of Joe's hungry little hands.
The sign "Anthony Campanaro, Fruits and Vegetables" was an homage to Tony Campanaro who managed the numerous pets and animals seen through the Hal Roach films.
