Young George mixes a medicine to make his nasty grandmother more likeable, and once she drinks it she grows to immense proportions. George's father wants the formula to breed a race of super-size livestock, but George can't duplicate the recipe. His fourth try is a potion that shrinks the drinker to nothing - and greedy Grandma drinks it with expected results!
