Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever is a charming comedy movie from 1939 that continues the saga of the Hardy family in the small town of Carvel, USA. The film features a wonderful cast of actors, including Lewis Stone as Judge Hardy, Mickey Rooney as his son Andy, and Cecilia Parker as Andy's girlfriend, Polly Benedict. The plot of Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever revolves around the trials and tribulations of Andy Hardy as he navigates his way through high school life, relationships, and adulthood. As the title implies, Andy is struck by a sudden burst of spring fever, which sends his hormones into overdrive and his mind into a blur. He finds himself falling head over heels for the new girl in town, Kay Wilson (played by Kathryn Grayson), who has just moved in with her grandfather.

Despite all of his attempts to impress Kay, Andy finds himself in a sticky situation when he is caught in a compromising position with her in her bedroom. His father is furious and sends him on a vacation to Catalina Island to clear his head and straighten out his priorities. However, even on vacation, Andy can't seem to shake the girl-crazy bug that has bitten him, and he spends most of his time chasing after girls and getting into mischief.

Meanwhile, back in Carvel, Judge Hardy is dealing with his own set of problems. He is running for re-election as the town's judge, and his opponent is a shrewd businessman who will stop at nothing to win. Judge Hardy's only hope is to convince the town's people that he is an honest and reliable judge who has their best interests at heart. He enlists the help of his wife, Mrs. Hardy (played by Fay Holden), and his daughter Marian (played by Donna Reed), to win over the voters and keep his position.

As Andy's vacation draws to a close, he realizes that he must return to Carvel and face the consequences of his actions. He is determined to make amends with his father and prove that he can be a responsible young man. With the help of Polly, who has stood by his side throughout the ordeal, Andy sets out to win back his father's trust and win over the girl of his dreams.
