Cartoon Summary:

In happy China, a young boy is on his way to seeing his girlfriend. They perform a song that's the same title as this cartoon (as many of the other, earliest Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies share titles with the songs performed in them), and they spend time together. The subplot involves the trademark gags found in cutaway scenes from the couple and a Mandarin who, after returning to his home, introduces "'melican" music to the traditional band and servants inside. He livens up some local music by playing some Pee Wee-style clarinet the American way. The band and servants instantly join in and have a jazz jam session. The boy and girl hear the music, and they head into the home. But everyone's great time is interrupted by a fire-breathing dragon who escapes his cage and enters the home. The Mandarin then teams up with the little girl and boy to combat the ferocious dragon. Fireworks are shoved down the dragon's throat, which causes him to explode and turn into a walking dragon skeleton.
