    Animation featuring the characters Bud and Susie.

    A chef is stretching dough and throwing it against a tree. Bud and Susie (two children) watch. They walk home and Susie throws Bud up in the air and he does a somersault. Bud goes into a bedroom where a cat is sleeping in a strange cot. He wakes the cat up (she is not happy - looks a bit like a female Felix). She puts some clothes on. The cat calls out "All's Well", Susie is mixing something in a bowl. Mother in a rocking chair looks through a keyhole, sees Susie and laughs. Susie samples her mixture. She tiptoes into the kitchen and knocks on the sugar barrel. Bud is inside. He pours a cup of sugar into her mixture. She gets some of her mixture out of the bowl and swings it around on the end of a stick so that it spells the word "Susie". Mother looks through the keyhole again and sees Bud getting out of the sugar barrel. The cat goes into the lounge. Bud gets excited about the sweet mixture and starts salivating. He wipes his mouth with his hand. Susie throws the mixture on top of him - he disappears under it. She pulls it off and stretches it out. Bud brings in the cat and they tease it by holding a bowl of food in front of it but wrapping the dough around its tail so that it can't get to it. They then use the dough as a skipping rope. Bud skips then the cat has a go. She gets caught up in the mixture, Bud does too and so does Susie. Woman in rocking chair laughs uproariously and falls of the chair. She goes into the room and puts her hands on her hips. She pulls the children out of the mixture and puts them in the bath. The cat jumps out covered in the mixture. She walks out, sticking to the floor then jumps in a wash basin and washes off the dough, taking great pleasure in drying her body and hair with a towel. Mother is washing Susie's hair. Bud (naked) dives into the bath and mother gives them both a good scrub.
