Betty leaves Pudgy in her dressing room while she goes to perform her stage show. Her show involves singing a song, then impersonating a Chinese man and an Italian organ grinder. While she's singing, a kitten comes to the dressing room and Pudgy gets out and begins chasing it. They get onto the stage, and in the orchestra pit, and become part of the act, upstaging Betty.

When this cartoon begins, Betty Boop is getting ready to go on stage. Just before, she puts Pudgy to bed and heads off for the stage. However, as Betty is doing her song (a particularly bad one, at that), Pudgy is awakened by a cat. And, doing what dogs do, he gives chase. The pair end up interrupting Betty's routine (again, the song sucked, so it was a blessing) and the audience loves the antics of the dog and cat. At first, the pair pretend to be friends and perform together. However, it soon turns to an all-out war--and the audience* is in stitches.

For the most part, I liked this cartoon. But, as I mentioned above, Betty's song was pretty awful---and seeing her pretending to be Chinese and Italian was quite painful. However, Pudgy was cute and the animation was nice.

*After seeing most of Betty's films, this is the first I can recall where her audience was made up of humans. Normally they are various human-like animals or weirdos. Here, they are just folks.
