Plot – Kenneth Zevo founded his factory with the firm belief that, to create successful toys, the people who build them must enjoy their work. His son Leslie, who has understood his father's message, takes only one quote seriously: 'Never take anything seriously'. As he saunters through the factory wearing a coat and singing in different languages, he glowingly observes the beautiful realization of a dream that his father has cultivated throughout his life: 'Fun at hand for everyone'. The dying father leaves the management of the factory to his brother, General Leland Zevo, a warmonger who wants to create videogames and modern toy weapons to supplant the real war arsenal of the United States. However, with the help of his sister Alsatia, Gwen, his cousin and some old toys, Leslie vanquishes the mad plan.
