Porky reads a book of new dog tricks; unfortunately, his dog, Rover, is old. A puppy comes by and taunts him. Finally, it comes down to stick fetching. The puppy shows up Rover several times. Then Rover enters a construction site and brings back a stick of dynamite instead, and Porky tries to throw it away, but the puppy keeps bringing it back. Meanwhile, Rover has run inside to look up dynamite in the dictionary, and when he finds it, he rushes outside (where the puppy has lit what is now a whole box). He carries the dynamite to a safe distance, where it explodes.

Did You Know?
This was the first cartoon to end with Porky breaking out of the Looney Tunes drum saying his trademark line "Th-Th-Th-That's All Folks!". See more
See, old timer? You're through. Washed up.
You mean to say, I'm one of them there used-to-wasits?
Yes, I mean to say you're one of them there used-to-wasits.
Hey, D-don't imi... imi... mimic rover like that. He's sensitive.
Oh g-g-gee, I'm sorry to hear th-th-that. Nyah!
This cartoon was colorized in 1968 by having every other frame traced over onto a cel. Each redrawn cel was painted in color and then photographed over a colored reproduction of each original background. Needless to say, the animation quality dropped considerably from the original version with this method. The cartoon was colorized again in 1995, this time with a computer adding color to a new print of the original black and white cartoon. This preserved the quality of the original animation. See more
