Plot Overview

Despite Uncle Joe having trained the chimpanzee he bought Kathy Jo as her first birthday present to run errands for him, the chimp nonetheless is wreaking havoc everywhere else in the hotel. The girls and Janet agree that the chimp has to go, and the person who needs to get rid of it is Uncle Joe, as the chimp has become his best friend more than Kathy Jo's new plaything. They also volunteer Steve to be the bearer of the bad news to Uncle Joe. When Uncle Joe gets the news, he agrees only on the condition that they find him a good home. Although Uncle Joe is true to his word in getting rid of the chimp despite the heartache of doing so, they find that the task is a little more difficult than just finding it that new home.
