The Fat Baby in this minor comedy was obviously played by a grown man. This, evidently, was supposed to be hilariously funny -- and who knows, maybe audiences of the period thought it was. The humor revolves around the normal-sized parents' efforts to accommodate their lives to their corpulent infant. This proves difficult, inasmuch as the fat baby causes the collapse of everything he sits on or lies in. A critic for the trade magazine Variety offered the opinion that the star of The Fat Baby closely resembled Ed Dunkhorst, a popular boxer of the period better known as "The Human Freight Car."
