Animation featuring Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - a cartoon dog. A U.I.C. production.
We see a door which is marked "Jerry - Builder and Decorator." Jerry is in his office sitting with his feet on the table smoking a cigar. He blows smoke rings which do little tricks. He looks at the audience and taps the ash off his cigar. The telephone rings and makes Jerry jump - he looks cross. We see Jerry and the person he is speaking to in little circular cut-outs placed on another image of a landscape with telegraph poles stretching off into the distance. The man Jerry is speaking to is wearing a dressing gown and a funny little hat - possibly Scottish. The man says: "I want you to paper the parlour." Jerry nods and replies: "I'll be on the job in ten minutes!" Jerry attempts to put a wallpaper table together. Slapstick stuff ensues. It keeps collapsing.
Jerry rolls out the paper and cuts a piece off, unfortunately he accidentally cuts the bristles off his brush at the same time. He has an idea - he puts some hair restorer onto the brush. The bristles grow. Jerry climbs onto a plank on stilts to put wallpaper paste on the wall. The plank is very unsteady and Jerry slides backwards and forwards looking very alarmed. The paste pot slides backwards and forwards too. The man who has employed Jerry comes striding through the house. As he approaches Jerry the paste pot falls off the plank and onto his head. Jerry gets kicked out of the house and the paste pot comes flying out after him. It lands on his head.
