Cartoon Summary:

Doc, a feline with musical talents, conducts an all-alley-cat symphony orchestra in a rendition of Giacomo Rossini's Cinderella overture. He enters the rehearsal hall and, with a touch of spring, is projected to the top of a grandfather clock that is the podium from which he directs the orchestra.

A mouse is peacefully sleeping on his matchbox bed inside the clock, underneath the swinging pendulum. As Doc is directing the orchestra, he leans over and playfully lowers the pendulum so that the mouse is caught and swings with its motion. The band plays on. The mouse, now angry, endeavors to out-scream the band, but he's muffled by Doc.

He crawls back into his bed beneath the pendulum, but he again is caught in its swinging motion. The mouse, now really mad, sets a water bottle on Doc's podium spring, severs the catch with an axe, and the water bottle flies up and covers Doc's head. The band still plays on. The mouse then ties a mallet to Doc's tail, and as he directs the band through an exciting musical sequence, the mallet clouts him on the head and knocks him prone on the floor in front of the podium.

After several similar episodes, Doc finally grabs the mouse and throws him to the band. The mouse gets mixed in several instruments, and finally, in a dizzy whirl, he lands on a musical saw. The band plays on. Using the saw, the mouse cuts off the podium, which, with Doc, crashes to the floor. The mouse then takes the baton and leads the band as the pendulum beats time on Doc's head.
