Cartoon Summary:

We see a lump of modeling clay that becomes a face- and then another- and then another. Sculptor Willie Hopkins takes a lump of clay and models, by means of stop-motion photography, three different heads out of it: a Frenchman, a monocled Englishman and an Irishman. All three heads are bothered by a pesky fly, and the heads try to cope with it by moving noses, ears and eyebrows, to no effect. Finally, the sculptor's hand comes into the picture to smash the fly!
