Synopsis: Samuel Smith and his dog Rover (both voiced by Daws Butler) get hit by a car and switch personalities when a cockeyed ambulance attendant mixes up the human and dog plasma.

Cartoon Kitten: After Sam and Rover drive everyone they encounter near crazy, including Sam’s wife Margaret (voiced by Grace Stafford), Margaret opens the front door to find a small gray kitten mewing.
