The moving men had previously been struggling to lift what they thought was a burlap sack from the truck but then realized was a fire hydrant.  After the men leave Jackie works to cover the fireplug again.  The policeman’s son Banter walks out and sees Jackie and starts spanking him and tugging on the cat’s string.

Jackie then comes upon Mickey and Jack (Jack Davis) as they are tying a piece of string to their dog’s tail.  The other end of the string is tied to one of Mickey’s front teeth and this is their plan to pull the tooth.  Only Mickey is a little hesitant and gets up and follows the dog around instead of sitting still.  Jackie comes upon the scene carrying his cat.
