  • May Wallace - Harry's Mother

The Short

Plot: Summer is over, and the kids unhappily march off to school reluctant to miss fishing, swimming and the circus. Joe Cobb goes as far as trying to forge a note from his mother to get out of school in a scheme that fails. Harry Spear writes a note reporting his mother has broken both her legs and needs him at home, but the scheme is ruined when she walks to the school for an appearance. Meanwhile, too young for school, Wheezer decides to go fishing. The sight of his fish distracts some seals, who escape from the circus and follow Wheezer past the schoolhouse, creating a disturbance.
