Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This cartoon is the prototype for a handful of later Warner Bros. efforts featuring a dog named Charlie, who'd do anything--ANYTHING--to be adopted by a master. For the benefit of his homeless pal, the fast-talking Rover describes the methods by which he has wormed his way into the household of Porky Pig. When all else fails (and it does spectacularly), Rover threatens to commit suicide by jumping off an apartment ledge! The cartoon's innovative background art includes several genuine photographs of the Manhattan skyline.
