Conrad the Cat, not the Brightest Bulb on Broadway

Conrad the Cat plays the part of a goofy deliveryman bringing a potted plant to a theater. After a series of mishaps involving the delivery of the plant, he stumbles onto a stage setting of a magician. He begins playing with the magician's props, first pulling a rabbit out of a hat, then getting in a fight with a gray bird which is about the same size as Conrad's thumb. The bird proceeds to make a fool out of Conrad. By the time the cartoon ends, the plant has wilted and died because the delivery has taken so long, and the flower pot is broken. Conrad ultimately trips and triggers a fall of seven more magician's top hats, thus releasing seven more gray birds to torment him. The character of Conrad is based on a comedian named Ben Blue, according to Ben Mankiewicz of Turner Classic Movies.
