Little Jackie Cooper is on a football team and wants to throw a party for his teammates. His mother has just cleaned the house so she says he can't throw the party at home. Jackie proceeds to the MGM lot where Norma Shearer intervenes with Mr. Mayer to allow the boys to have a party on a soundstage. All the biggest stars of the day are serving tables at the party with a lot of cameos and wisecracks. Set during Christmas, it ends with Cooper making a speech to wish everyone a great holiday season.
