Scrappy paints a picture of Oopie, the cat and the bird and sneaks them into the local art gallery, which is, of course, full of well known paintings. Their doppelgangers from the painting come alive and interact with the other paintings, creating havoc.
This is one of a genre of cartoons in which objects come alive in a setting, like billboards, drug stores or magazine racks. It seems to have flourished for about a dozen years, then come abruptly to an end with Bob Clampett's BOOK REVUE in 1946.
Even though Dick Huemer had left the series by the time, this one was begun, it has a lot of strengths, including the elaborate, involved proto-candybox art that Mintz' staff excelled in. Also, for once, there is a full cartoon's wort of material - far too many of the series have a great first half, then they run out of gas. Not here!
