Animation featuring that naughty dog Jerry - this week he gets fired from a gun.
Animation featuring Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - a cartoon dog. A U.I.C. production.
C/U of the artists hand as he draws Jerry's lower half. Jerry keeps walking around so the artist doesn't have a chance to finish the drawing. Jerry jumps around. The artist writes the words: "Come here!!" Jerry stamps his foot and says NO. The two have an argument. The artist gets a drawing pin and pins Jerry's foot in place. The artist draws the rest of him. He is punching the air and looking very cross. Shot of Jerry on a piece of paper balanced on the artists drawing board. Jerry looks scared and shakes his head. He holds his arms in front of himself. The artist's hand approaches holding a gun (!) The gun is pointed at Jerry's stomach. Jerry suddenly disappears into the gun. We see the artist holding the gun.
He looks down the barrel of the gun and shakes it. He then blows into it, presumably he is trying to get Jerry out. He pushes a pen into the gun and shakes it again. He then opens up the gun and looks inside. He puts some bullets into the gun and shoots it onto the page. A shape flies around the page - Jerry's leg. The other leg, two arms, Jerry's body and head are all fired onto the page. Jerry's head spins round and round until it stops in the right spot. Jerry looks thoughtful. The artist turns the paper around and on the back it reads: "The End."
