Cartoon Summary:

A mother turtle lays four eggs in the warm sand to hatch Tom, Dick, Harry and Clem. Mom goes off to find a sunlamp, and Clem hatches out just his feet and wanders off. Clem walks into a barnyard, where he tries to get completely hatched by a cow. The cow golfs him into the barn, making the dog think that he has just laid an egg. Meanwhile, Mom, Tom, Dick and Harry are excavating the beach looking for Clem. The dog thinks that he'll be famous as the first dog to lay an egg, and chases Clem around the barnyard. He has a tussle with a hen. Finally, Clem finds his way back to his mother, and she hatches him completely. "Aw, wouldn't you know it, I'm still in a gol-dang shell!"
