Synopsis

A narrator states five definitions of the word "hero" and gives an example of each type. There's Hercules, General Custer, Alexander Graham Bell, Tarzan—and each has a hilarious bit of business. However, the greatest hero is Milo Sapperstein, guardian of the city sewage system. Milo's enemy is the dreaded Dr. Draino who, in his eagerness to steal Milo's fianceé, clogs up the sewers, forcing Milo to go down there where he's nearly killed when Dr. Draino turns on the Moto-Rooter blades. As Milo only has $39 with him, the attending physician does what she can to put him back together with spare parts. We guarantee you at least 39 laughs!
