Storyline

Scrappy wants to impress his girl, who dismisses him with "oh, grow up." He sees a billboard, and decides smoking will impress her, so he fashions a cigar from cabbage leaves and proceeds to do a number of tricks. She's mildly interested, but then he swallows the cigar by accident and starts spitting fire; her panties catch on fire, and they panic trying to put them out.

The film begins with a little girl singing a dreadful 'la, la, la' tune--the same one, actually, that you hear Scrappy singing in "Sunday Clothes". It is really awful--fortunately it doesn't last too long! Scrappy notices this girl and instantly falls head-over-heels--as you can see with the weird cupid who appears! But the girl doesn't notice him--so he tries to show off by smoking a home-made cigar. This still doesn't impress her, so he begins showing off--and accidentally swallows it in the process! Well, this DID get the girl's attention--especially when Scrappy begins spitting flames!

The animation is the typically nice black & white animation of the Scrappy series by Charles Mintz. However, this is not one of the better cartoons, as its plot is a bit too simple and lacks punch. Worth seeing but quite forgettable.
