"...[The] lensing by Irv Goodnoff is pleasing..."
The obtuse nephew of a multi-millionaire finds that he has inherited a fortune. However, a stipulation in the will requires that he become a hobo before he can become a billionaire.
To inherit his uncle's fortune, Vernon Praiseworthy must ride the rails in imitation of a Depression-era hobo, just as his uncle did before he became rich. Vernon and his faithful dog Bo take off on their adventure and soon find themselves enmeshed in a dognapping scheme with two thugs.
