Mary had taken a trip to New York, and Jack reads a letter from her. Chasing after guys, connecting with family, and an encounter with Fred Allen are all included. Kenny Baker has brought his gal, Lena, to help out with the jokes. Phil Harris plays, Melanchollie Baby.
Jack and Phil joke about picking losers at the horse races. Jack’s violin makes a miraculous reappearance. Kenny Baker sings, The Night is Young and You’re So Beautiful.
Andy Devine pops in to joke about Mary’s absence. Jack gets in a few extra gags at Fred Allen’s expense. The moment has arrived, and with much build up, Jack finally plays Schubert’s, The Bee. He actually plays it well, and with only a little clowning around. The ragtime bits Jack tosses in must be something similar to his original vaudeville act, named from Classic to Ratime.
