Storyline

While out grocery shopping, meek, middle-aged Samuel Smith and family pet Rover are run over by a speeding car. Fortunately for them, an ambulance shows up right away. Unfortunately for them, the ambulance attendant mistakenly treats Sam with dog plasma and Rover with human plasma. Both immediately recover - after which Sam starts erupting into bouts of dog-like behavior and Rover begins walking and talking like a human being, much to the consternation of the people around them, especially Sam's wife, Margaret.

Trivia

Tex Avery: [song] The theme song is Kingdom Come, or Year of Jubilo, a minstrel show tune written in 1862 by Henry Clay Work. The original song sympathetically recounts an heroic American slave revolt against the Southern plantation system, with plenty of humorous slapstick for comic relief. The tune is very catchy and rollicking, so it is not surprising that many humorous American movies including this cartoon series as well the Christmas movie Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) employ it in their soundtracks. However, you will never hear the original song lyrics sung anymore except as part of an educational lesson or an historically accurate context in a movie. This is because, while the song expresses a commendably benevolent and progressive viewpoint, the writing style sounds quite offensive to modern ears. To wit, the very first line of the song reads "Say darkey, have you seen de massa, wif de moustache on his face?" and it only goes downhill from there. See more »

Simply hilarious
19 May 2000 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is simply the greatest Tex Avery short animated film I know. And I believe to have seen almost all of them. This is as simple as it sounds: blood transfusion goes wrong, man had dog blood and dog has man blood. The dog acts like his owner, patting the woman's head, the man acts like a dog, chasing birds around and bringing the slippers to his dog. If you analyze the film-making, you can easily realize how much efforts Tex Avery was putting in trying to make his audience laugh every 10 seconds or so. I cannot think of a sequence that isn't funny. The animated sequences of each person's face whenever they are bewildered at the occurrences are simply amazing: very often have I felt bewildered and immediately thought about this sequence, expecting my hairpiece to turn on itself, clock-like cuckoos to pop out of my mouth... The rendering of bewilderment has never been equaled after this. Up to its last plot twist , this film is hilarious. According to me, this cartoon is one of Tex's funniest, and also one of his wackiest.
