Then there’s the story of Wee Willy\, the gangster.

Go ofy wants to be a children’s nurse so he borrows some clothes from his Aunt Anna\, a red-and-white checked calico dress and a big hat. And he tries hi s luck as a kindergarten teacher\, not very successfully though\, because t he kids all say they’ve never seen such a queer old doll. Goofy gets beaten up by the kids and flings his gear in the trashcan.

At that moment\, an escaped convict com es by\, Wee Willy\, the gangster. He’s no bigger than a 3-year-old girl. He finds Goofy’s gear in the trashcan and puts it on.

On his way home\, Goofy bumps into Wee W illy wearing Aunt Anna’s dress. “Poor little homeless mite\,” Goofy thinks and takes the little girl home. He dishes up pheasant and partridges and a whole goose\, and Wee Willy stuffs himself full. Goofy’s pretty surprised a t the little girl’s appetite. But he’s mighty pleased\, too and thumps his fists on the table. Wee Willy behaves terribly\, but at last Goofy finds jo y looking after a child.

\n

During the night th e house is surrounded by gangsters. No\, not by gangsters\, by police. They storm the house and find Wee Willy. They recognize him\, despite the gear he’s wearing. Goofy’s amazed and asks what they want of a poor little girl. “This is terrible! What has she done? Poor little orphan!” The police info rm him that it’s Wee Willy\, a wanted criminal. And as the police carry Wil ly out\, explosive as a hand grenade\, Goofy says: “Must have been a shock for the poor little girl to find out she’s a crook.”
