Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ambrose is a little kitten with big plans. He wants to be a bold, brave highwayman, just like his idol, the notorious Dirty Bill from Cootie Hill, who "never took a bath and never will." Alas, Ambrose's mom not only regularly gives him baths, but refuses to address him by his chosen nickname "Butch." Running away from home, Ambrose aspire to a life of carefree banditry--and much to his delight, he soon crosses the path of Dirty Bill himself. At first feigning friendship, Dirty Bill quickly turns murderous when he's led to believe that "Butch" has just robbed a stagecoach full of bejewelled passengers. The gimlet-eyed bandit demands that "Butch" hand over his swag--OR ELSE! Will Ambrose learn his lesson in time, or will the knife-wielding Dirty Bill claim another victim?
