Ambrose the kitten renames himself Butch and runs away from home with plans to become a robber. His first intended victim, though, is a real robber: Dirty Bill, a dog. Dirty Bill asks Ambrose/Butch if he's pulled off any big jobs, and he tells of the stagecoach robbery we saw him enacting with dolls and toys at the beginning of the movie, without, of course, mentioning that it was all playacting. Bill asks him about the loot, and Butch brings out a bag of cookies. Bill won't accept that answer, and comes after Ambrose, scaring him right into the bath he earlier avoided. Written by

This is one of Disney's best short cartoons. A young cat named Ambrose wants to be a daring outlaw. He renames himself Butch and doesn't want to take baths. "Robbers don't take baths!" he exclaims. He runs off into the forest, where he runs into a real outlaw, Dirty Bill, a bulldog. This is one of Disney's best villains. His song, explaining why he is called Dirty Bill, is just great. 10/10.
