    Joe Noble animation featuring the characters Sammy and Sausage. Could be number 15 in the series.

    We see the artist drop a spot of ink onto a canvas he has standing on an easel. Sammy and Sausage appear. They do a little dance. C/U of Joe who takes his pipe out of his mouth and speaks to the characters. "No time to draw you - I'm Swimming." By a camera trick, Joe's clothes change - a checked cap appears on his head. "Going for your annual at Chiswick Baths?" asks Sammy. When Joe walks off Sausage says: "Let's pack up some food and follow him." They shake hands and jump up and down with excitement. They walk along with Sausage carrying a bundle of food. Sausage says: "You mind the grub. I'll find the Guv'nor." Sausage finds a hole in the fence. He looks through and we see live action of people enjoying themselves at the open air swimming pool.

    Sausage winks at the camera. Sammy has laid out the food on a plate. He eats part of a cooked chicken. Sausage spots Joe. We see Joe standing on a diving board. He dives in. C/U of the surface of the water as he comes up for air and swims off. Sausage runs back to Sammy who has eaten all the food. He observes: "He's scoffed the lot!" Joe finds something in his pipe. It's a small live fish. Joe drops it and it falls into the cartoon, biting Sausage's tail. Sausage runs along with the fish attached to his tail.
