Spike is giving his son, Tyke, a bath. Once finished, he leaves him on the porch to go get some meat. But he doesn’t go too far before Tom and Jerry’s chasing antics cause Tyke to fall into the mud and get dirty again. After ordering Tom to clean him up, Spike warns him that if he’s dirty again by the time he gets back, he’ll pound him to pieces. Upon hearing this, Jerry attempts to get Tyke dirty himself in order to get Tom into trouble.
