Daffy gets called by the aptly named Dr. Ben Crazy (a parody of the then popular Ben Casey) to remove Speedy from his cats-only nursing home. To do his dirty work for him, Daffy uses his robot Herman to catch Speedy. Unfortunately, Herman proves to be no match for the mouse, (and Speedy's rat cousin, Ramon) and both he and Daffy eventually give up. When he tries to get his money after getting rid of Speedy, the temperamental Dr. Crazy throws Daffy through the window and out of the office!
The cartoon then closes with Daffy remarking: "It's a sad state of affairs, when a mouse can make a machine turn a duck into a chicken on account of a rat. What a revolting development!"
- On CBS, the part where Daffy chases Speedy on the electrical high wires was cut to remove Daffy grabbing the wire parallel to him and getting electrocuted.
