A delightful collaboration

Born in the company of an angel wearing a clown's nose, Potch has always woken up happy to be who and where he is. Then, when he meets Polly Pumpernickel at a masquerade ball, he does a double backflip, but it's his heart that really goes for a whirl. Polly goes for a whirl, too, and winds up in a fountain after a dance-gone-wrong with Potch. One catastrophe follows another as Potch tries to win her affection. Just when things look utterly hopeless, Polly realizes that Potch isn't merely another annoying short bald guy, and she comes up with a plan of her own
