    Animation featuring the cartoon character Bobby Bumps. A Bray Studio production.

    A heavy "bruiser" type walks into the picture. He wears a black cap and looks muscle bound. He sees a brick lying on the ground. He spits on it and it cracks in two. He then looks at a flower and it withers and dies. Bobby's dog Fido comes running along chasing a butterfly. He runs in between the baddy's legs. The baddy grabs him by the foot and lifts him into the air. The baddy then kicks him out of the picture. Fido goes flying then knocks Bobby Bumps over. Bobby gets annoyed and goes over to the bruiser and says: "What do you mean by kicking my dog?" The baddy blows smoke in Bobby's eyes. Bobby breathes out smoke. He throws down his cap and puts his dukes up. The bruiser picks him up and throws him. Bobby lands on top of Fido.

    "Fido - I'm going to start training for that bully." says Bobby. Fido does a cartwheel. "Training" Bobby hits a punch bag in a gym whilst Fido watches. Fido brings a mattress into the room so that Bobby has something soft to fall on. A cat comes along. Fido looks cross and says: "Private! Keep Out!" The cat socks the dog on the jaw. Fido says: "I'm gonna train for that cat!"

    Fido stands on the mattress and hits the punch ball. Fido hits the ball hard and it bounces back and hits him in the face. He punches the air. He jumps up on top of the punch ball stand and then kicks the ball with his back legs. He then sees Bobby who is lifting a large dumbbell. Fido puts his paws up and Bobby hands him the dumbbell. The sweat pours off Fido's head then suddenly he sinks through the floor, the dumbbell crashing through the floorboards. "The big fight." Bobby and Fido walk towards the bruiser. Bobby and the Bruiser have a fight. Bobby (of course) gets the better of him. It is pretty violent. After a few left hooks whilst he is flat on the ground the bruiser says "Enuff!" and Bobby stands victorious with his foot on top of the bruiser's head. Fido gets an idea - the cat!

    Fido runs off. He jumps through a window into a room where the cat lies sleeping. He lands on the cat and the cat's fur bristles and it arches its back. The two begin to fight (violent stuff). The cat seems to get the better of Fido, but when the cat goes into the gym and begins licking its paws, Fido grabs its tail and pulls it up through a hole in the board to which the punch ball was previously attached. Fido ties a knot in the cat's tail so that it can't get away then jumps down and begins hitting it like a replacement punch ball. The cat eventually says "Enuff!"

    A little mouse sitting on the mattress signs the name of the cartoonist "Earl Hurd".
