A man named John gives his wife a present, a Frisky Puppy. Despite this it becomes an annoyance to the other pets in the house, particularly Claude Cat. The constant yapping tries him to insanity, so much that he tries to kill Frisky and destroys the house in the process thus leading him to be thrown out by John.
Later, while Frisky is eating out of Claude's dish, Claude sneaks back into the house. Claude's loud barking sends the puppy jumping to the ceiling. Satisfied that he has given Frisky a taste of his own medicine, the cat leaves.
CBS and ABC have aired two different versions of this cartoon:
CBS' version in the 1980s cuts the part where Claude Cat is put through the washing machine cycle and comes out a wet, floating ball of fur.
The ABC version also cut the washing machine part, but began leaving that scene uncut starting in 1990. From 1990 to 1993, the cartoon was shown uncut. In 1994, however, two new scenes were cut: one scene in which Claude utilizes a string of sausage links to lure Frisky to a line of lit dynamite sticks, Claude getting caught in the explosion, and Frisky startling Claude into ramming into a light fixture, and another near the end of Claude Cat trying to suck Frisky Puppy out of the heating vent with a plunger, only to suck out the hot coals from the furnace and cause the coals to rain all over the living room (with Claude's master getting so mad at him for it that he throws him out).
