A young college dog calls on Betty Co-Ed with candy and flowers. He drops the candy along the way; and he blows off the flower petals with a sneeze. But it's just as well; before Betty can answer the door a couple of fraternity hazers grab him and toss him repeatedly into the air with a blanket. He's finally saved by a tree branch that catches him by the pants. Up in the tree, he's treated to the woodland animals' jazz playing: a spider is on the trumpet; a squirrel, the piano; another squirrel, the tuba; and more. The tree dances to the music and finally deposits the college kid back at Betty's doorstep. Later, Rudy Vallee appears, singing "Betty Co-Ed," and encouraging the audience to sing along by following the bouncing ball.
