Plot summary

Blondie is convinced by a salesman that Baby Dumpling is a genius with an IQ of 168, She enrolls him in kindergarten where he immediately gets into a fight resulting in a black eye. Later, Baby Dumpling skips school to play with Daisy. Blondie and Dagwood report to the police that Baby Dumpling and Daisy are missing. Meanwhile, Daisy is picked up by the dog catcher and taken to the pound where she is adopted by the nurse of a rich little girl who uses a wheelchair. Baby Dumpling spots Daisy inside the gates of the mansion and begins to play with Daisy and the girl. They are spotted. While adults argue about letting the children play together, Baby Dumpling and the little girl wander off with Daisy. The children are found playing on a swing where the little girl demonstrates she has been encouraged to walk. The nurse states, "Weak children can be taught by strong children and strong children learn compassion."

Dagwood shows his architectural model to the girl's father who decides to purchase the building. As a result, Dagwood, who had been fired by Mr. Dithers earlier, is promised a nice bonus.
