"...Amusing....A lot of fun....Powered almost totally by the energy of Richard Pryor..."

Product Description:

Jackie Gleason is U.S. Bates, the wealthy owner of a department store. When his bratty young son Eric (Scott Schwartz, A CHRISTMAS STORY) makes one of his annual visits, Bates offers the boy the gift of anything he wants in the store. When Jack Brown (Richard Pryor), an out-of-work journalist working as the store's janitor, makes Eric laugh with his antics, the boy chooses the Brown as his gift. Brown suffers through many indignities and embarrassments in his new position, but eventually teaches the selfish child what it means to have a true friend.

Plot Synopsis:

In order to meet his mortgage payments, Jack, a would be reporter, agrees to be employed as a "living toy" for a rich brat. This spoiled child enjoys playing practical jokes, but finds a formidable adversary in Jack, who is quite the prankster himself. Of course the boy's mischievous behavior is designed to attract his father's attention. So, Jack takes on the task of uniting father and son, and of teaching them both the true value of friendship.
