In this cartoon love triangle, a mouse named Daisy Lou has two suitors. One, Elmo, is a modest, scrawny, country mouse with yokel speech and mannerisms, while the other, Blackie, is a smug, suave, muscular sophisticate. When Blackie appears to have won Daisy Lou's affections with a mink stole, Elmo promises to obtain an ermine coat for her. He returns with a fur coat, which he presents to a grateful and adoring Daisy Lou. The fur is from a cat named Herman, whom Elmo thought was ermine and led on a chase around a table, which knocked Herman unconscious so that Elmo could remove a coat-shaped patch of fur. Written by
