Little Giant

Synopsis: Lou Costello plays a country bumpkin vacuum-cleaner salesman, working for the company run by the crooked Bud Abbott. To try to keep him under his thumb, Abbott convinces Costello that he's a crackerjack salesman. This comedy is somewhat like "The Time of Their Lives," in that Abbott and Costello don't have much screen time together and there are very few vaudeville bits woven into the plot.
Genre: Comedy
Director(s): William A. Seiter
Production: Off the Fence Productions

been giving me vitamin A, B and D.

But, no, you're smarter.

You say I need vitamin C.

Look, mister...

I'm sorry. I tripped over the

oranges. Oranges are good for you?

Oranges are very good for you.

How 'bout some nice...

I'm sorry again.

I'm so anxious.

How 'bout a nice jar of

marmalade? I don't eat marmalade.

You don't eat marmalade. Why don't

you take a jar home to your children.

Let 'em have a spoonful. One spoonful, huh?

One spoonful of marmalade

for 11 kids.

But they're only my kids.

They're not entitled to any more!

Mister, take the whole jar.

Let the kids eat the whole jar.

Oh, they should stuff

themselves and get sick?

Now you've got me paying doctor

bills. I don't want you to pay bills.

Oh, a man goes to medical school for

eight years, studies day and night,

becomes a doctor,

saves my children's lives...

and you want me to beat him out of

his bill, huh? I didn't say that.

Oh, I said it. I go around

telling everybody I'm a deadbeat.

I hope you're satisfied. You stuff my

kids with your marmalade, you got 'em sick,

now I've gotta explain

to the doctors what's wrong.

You won't have to do that.

They'll find out for themselves.

Oh yeah? They can

experiment on my kids?

Use my kids for guinea pigs.

Say it. My kids are guinea pigs.

Your kids ain't guinea pigs.

Oh... they're just plain pigs, huh?

Mister, if you don't want the marmalade

that my mama made this morning,

how 'bout some nice fresh eggs

my mama laid...

I mean, the leghorns laid them this

morning. Buddy, I don't want eggs.

You don't want any eggs? No eggs.

These are very fine eggs. Even the

worst cook... Oh, the worst cook?

Now you're draggin' my wife

into the argument.

My wife is a rotten cook. Go on,

say it. Your wife's a good cook.

I suppose the indigestion comes
