Elmer threatens to give his dog a bath if he doesn't stop scratching, but the poor pooch is the victim of a hungry flea whose tools of the trade include pickaxes and dynamite.
When A. Flea pulls out his "Flea Meat Chart", we can see in very small print, just below the heading, the names "Sasanoff Michael", "Bob Clampett" and "Earl Klein" (the cartoon's layout man/art director, director, and background artist)
Well... now I've seen everything.
At the original end of this cartoon, the flea carries Elmer and the dog away on a platter. The cat sees this, says "Now I've seen everything" to the camera, then shoots himself in the head. This ending is rarely shown on television; it fades to black during the cat's last line instead.
