Down the Drain!

“Splish, splash, I was taking a bath... ” Adam hates baths. He’s filthy, though, so his father throws him in the tub. But little does Dad know that his son has a few tricks up his sleeve. Now that Adam’s in control of the tap and plug, the chaos will begin! This is a riotous tribute to kids who hate baths and the parents who dread giving them.
