After a long hard day of being a dog, Spike wants nothing more than to get some shut-eye. Unfortunately for him, the barnyard rooster just wants to crow all night, and the noise is keeping Spike up! Thrown shoes, two-by-fours, hand grenades, nothing seems to shut that rooster up, so what's a dog to do? Written by

Tex Avery loved sight gags piled on top of one another, coming fast and furiously at the viewer. This short is simply one long string of sight gags in a battle of wits between a dog (usually named Spike, but not to be confused with the Spike found in Tom and Jerry cartoons with some frequency. Same name, different dog) and a rooster with a Type A personality. Great cartoon, but the unrelenting and unbroken chain of sight gags begins to wear on you. They almost come too fast. It's still great fun and a wonderful cartoon. Well worth watching. Recommended.
