The Short

Plot: Mary Ann gets a kick out of watching Harry Spear wiggle his ears, but he doesn't really care for her and bullies her around in return. Joe Cobb, however, is very fond of Mary Ann and tries to wiggle his ears lile Harry. When Harry discovers Jean, he charms her with the ear trick, getting Mary Ann to buy them ice cream and push him in his "Rolls-Royce" go-cart. Her little heart is crushed in this predicament. Farina convinces her to dress like a flapper to win Harry back, but he remains uninterested. Wheezer meanwhiles helps Joe to wiggle his ears with some string and gum, winning Mary Ann's heart, but by now, Harry is disillusioned to having Jean in a pretend marriage as she now has him waiting on her like a handservant.
