    Jerry decides to enter a dog show in an attempt to win the beauty prize.

  • Description

    A U.I.C. production. Animation featuring Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - a cartoon dog. Jerry stands in front of a large mirror combing his hair/ears. M/S of Sid Griffiths sitting at the drawing board. He points a finger at the drawing on an easel in front of him. "What's all the fuss about?" he asks. Jerry says: "I've entered myself for the dog show!" Sid sits back in his chair. Jerry flexes his ears backwards and forwards. He makes his ears all pointed. "What price me as an Alsatian?" Sid shakes his head. He puts a brush on his head and says: "Think I'll do as one of these?" Sid shakes his head. "Well give me a few spots and I'll go as a Dalmatian!!" shouts Jerry. Sid draws spots all over Jerry's body. Jerry looks in the mirror and announces: "Makes me look like a plum pudding!" Jerry shakes his body and all the spots fly off. Sid looks shocked - they have landed on him. Sid dabs his face with a handkerchief. "I'll go as myself, and try for the beauty prize!" He strikes a pose in front of the mirror then walks out of the room. Entrance to the Dog Show. Signs on the wall next to the entrance read: "Join the Kennel Club" and "Bill Barker's Biscuits Build Bonny Bull Dogs."

    A car drives past and drops a dog off at the entrance. She has a bow tied around her neck and a long tail. Another car drives up - the driver is a Bull Dog. He goes inside. Jerry arrives. He points at the car and says "SWANK!" He walks very determinedly past signs which read: "To the Dog Show", "No Barking Aloud", "Competitors Entrance". Various dogs are shown with signs above them reading either "Prize" or "Highly Commended". Jerry walks in. He nudges a sleeping dog - the dog sits up, it is a mean looking Bull Dog. Jerry looks shocked. He says: "Sorry!! My Mistake!" Jerry meows like a cat and all the dogs jump off the prize rostrums to find the pussy. Jerry jumps up on the podium and writes "First" over the sign that says "Prize" then poses underneath it. Intertitle announces: "Awarding the Prizes." The dogs go into the Judge's Room one by one. A voice emerges "Peko-Sneko takes the Gold Challenge Cup!" Dog with a long tail emerges holding a trophy. "Burly Bill takes the £500 cash prize!" The Bull Dog walks out holding a money bag. "Now it's MY turn!" says Jerry. He punches the dog behind him for no apparent reason! The voice says "Jerry Takes The Biscuit!" Jerry walks out holding a large square biscuit. The other dogs laugh. He throws the biscuit which knocks them all over. He walks off. End.
