Synopsis

Little Benny Antonelli is so small that when the kids on Third Street play keep-away, he gets to be the ball. And that's no fun. (Well, at least not for Benny.)

But the annual Third Street Block Party is right around the corner. And that's where the littlest Antonelli's gonna prove that a kid no bigger than a peanut butter sandwich has what it takes to be...

The Big Cheese of Third Street.
