Mickey's overprotective mother is trying to raise her son as a gentleman by dressing him like a sissy and enrolling him in dance school. Mickey takes things particularly hard when he sees the gang playing with a toy airplane. The only family member who sympathizes with Mickey's plight is his Grandma, who knows that he is harboring a serious crush on precocious Mary. Grandma encourages Mickey to pursue Mary and agrees to cover for him when he sneaks away to visit her. Neighborhood bully Johnny — who also has eyes for Mary — looks for someone to slug and picks on Joe. Mickey sees this and the two face off. Mickey gets the worst of it until Grandma rallies him on, resulting in Johnny getting pretty well socked. His father comes to his rescue to help in beating up Mickey just as Grandma gets into the fight. Mickey's mother, having witnessed her son in action, comes to realize that Mickey should be a "regular boy" moving forward.
