Synopsis: Three kittens wake up in the morning and decide to spend their day teasing the family dog.
Cartoon Kitties: There really isn’t anything more to this animated short than the description above. These musical kittens take great pleasure in teasing the dog, which is gullible enough to play right into their pranks.
Strangely enough the kittens act more human in the sense that they sleep in a bed (the dog sleeps on a mat on the floor) and speak English (the dog only barks.)
In the end the kittens get a little taste of their own medicine (in the form of seltzer water) but there is no punishment for them and the dog even laughs with them in the end.
Final Mewsings: Just be thankful most kittens never learn how to tease!
