Dud's girlfriend Mamie wants an ice cream cone, but Dud is broke. He rushes home, steals a coin bank and chops it open with an ax, only to find that he's also split in half the one coin inside. Dud's mother sees this and spanks him. That night, Dud takes his dog and runs away into the woods. He imagines his mother finding him the next morning, weeping and reproaching herself for being so hard on him. Then he imagines finding buried treasure. These fantasies become nightmarish when he thinks he sees a bear, a demon and a laughing skull. It's morning now, and Dud returns home with his dog, only to suffer another spanking from his mother. The dog says, "Guess I might as well start training for what's coming to me," and hits his own behind several times on a fence. Written by J. Spurlin

Bad Boys Run Away
4 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dudley (Dud) tries to impress his little girlfriend by getting her ice cream. He breaks a little bank and finds nothing. He is caught and spanked by what appears to be his Granny. Ending up in bed without any supper, he wakes up and he and his little dog head off. There are several dream sequences where he punishes those in charge of his life by his absence. He also dreams he finds a chest of gold. As in a Betty Boop cartoon I saw recently, the woods if full of dangerous things, including evil spirits. The conclusion is a little surprise. The animation here is more sophisticated than much I've encountered recently. Some might think that a lot of the trouble is caused by women.
