The film was one of two commissioned by Kansas City Dentist Thomas B. McCrumb. It earned the Laugh-O-Gram studio $500. It extols the virtue of regular tooth brushing through the story of two boys: Tommy Tucker and Jimmie Jones. Tommy cares for his teeth, while Jimmie does not. The film ends with advice on proper tooth-brushing technique.
In 1926 Disney made the follow up short Clara Cleans Her Teeth, starring Walt’s niece Marjorie Sewell Davis, after being contacted by McCromb again, who asked for a sequel.
