Synopsis
Mr. Weatherbee has a drawer of playthings that teachers have confiscated from students. He dumps it in a box and asks Archie if he has any string. Archie empties a desk-full of junk from his pocket before finding string. Mr. Weatherbee makes the mistake of asking Archie to take the box to the incinerator. He, of course, spills the box along the way and the playthings make their way back to their original owners, starting the cycle all over again.
