George and Junior decide to get a legitimate job as dog catchers. The problem is that Junior is afraid of even the tiny (and surprisingly fierce) dogs. George tries dressing as a female dog to lure the dog to the truck; when that fails, he tries dressing both him and Junior in a giant cat suit. Then Junior tries a mouse trap baited with a hamburger from George's lunch and catches George ("a bad thing"). Finally, they dress as fireplugs and get far too much attention. Written by

George and Junior (sort of like cartoon versions of George and Lenny from "Of Mice and Men") decide to stop living the hobo life and get jobs. They become dog catchers but naturally not very good ones. When they see a tiny (and very large-headed) dog roaming about, Junior turns out to be afraid of dogs! Additionally, this tiny dog becomes a very formidable foil. So, George comes up with all sorts of crazy schemes to catch him--the sort of goofy things you'd expect from a film directed by Tex Avery.
So is it any good? It's Tex Avery-directed--so of course, it's very good!! However, the animation quality (especially the backgrounds) was even better than usual and was very striking. While not among Avery's very best with MGM, it is a darned good cartoon that I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying. Terrific.
