A Shakespearian dog, tired of being a pie-in-the-face looney tune, quits Warner Brothers to study dramatic acting and goes to his country house to practice the bard. He finds that two polite twin gophers have taken over his abode and angrily throws them out. They retaliate by violently heckling him in comical accordance with his Shakespeare speeches. Written by

When the gophers are sleeping in the book, each of the gophers are covered by two pages the ham actor is reading from (the gophers' snoring causes the pages to fly up revealing them). The Ham actor then throws the book outside with the gophers still inside the book. The book then opens up after hitting a tree and and the pages previously covering the gophers have disappeared.
