    C/U of Mr. Sam Small of New York. His chubby, young son Donald sits on his knee. Sam asks in a very wooden manner what Donald would like to buy with the money. Donald answers (shouting) that he wants a pony, a search light and a two wheel bicycle. The little boy keeps repeating himself and this makes his father laugh.
