The government is sending an inspector to Big Howard Little Howard's show and is in danger of finding out that Little Howard is the only funny one in the double-act. How can Little Howard save his friend from jail? Well, with some death-defying magic, a philharmonic orchestra of monkeys, a machine that turns people's dads into cartoons and a very large and heavy frying pan. Recommended for ages 3+. Runs for approximately one hour.
