Under contract to Warner Bros.' "Looney Tunes", a Shakespearean dog must submit himself to such slapstick indignities as being pelted with pies. Unable to withstand this abuse, the dog quits the movies in order to study the Bard and seek out roles more worthy of his talents. But after a hectic confrontation with "Goofy Gophers" Mac and Tosh, who have an unfortunate habit of taking the works of Shakespeare too literally ("My kingdom for a horse" results in a nasty kick from a mule), the hammy hound is more than happy to give up his artistic aspirations and resume his career as a cartoon fall guy.
