The Short

Plot: The gang creates their own gadget-filled self-propelled taxi. They catch up with Ernie and Farina delivering laundry to the home of J. William McAllister, one of the wealthiest men in town. McAllister's wife and doctor have been telling him that he's sick, but when the kids invade his home, they don't think he looks sick at all. McAllister believes them and rides with them in their taxicab down to the amusement park where they enjoy the fun house, roller coaster, and other attractions. The outing has done him a world of good, and as his wife and doctor come to "rescue" him, he realizes that he has never felt better a day in his life.
