Little Shirley and her one room school house group of kids is anxiously waiting for the arrival of the teacher, but Mr. Wilson is late because he is enjoying a breakfast of coffee and doughnuts at Dora's little doughnut shop. It seems that Mr. Wilson is sweet on Dora, and she is also sweet on him. After arriving at school late, Mr. Wilson's music class is interrupted by an urgent note from Dora. He rushes right over to her little shop and Dora informs him that she has been able to create the perfect donut. Not only is the taste spectacular, when you dunk it in a hot cup of coffee, it fills with coffee like a sponge, but doesn't break apart in your cup. Mr. Wilson is so impressed that he gets Dora to invest all of her money into sponsorning a live radio show where he and the kids will entertain the audience while advertising Dora's Dunking Doughnuts. We get a look at what live radio in 1933 was like in a humorous way, and in fact the entire movie is a wonderful peek at life in small-town America almost a hundred years ago.
