Cartoon Summary:

Andy Panda is conducting the Hollywood Washbowl Orchestra in a Sunday afternoon concert. It's one of those afternoons when everything goes wrong. A frog gets entangled in Andy's wig, but he finally manages to extricate himself. Andy's stiff shirt front catches on a nail. Yank and jerk as he will, it won't come loose. The orchestra, following every yank and jerk, goes into a very snappy jam session. A pig, a squirrel, a flock of birds and a cat do their best to interrupt the concert, but in spite of everything, Andy manages to hold forth and keep the musicians playing. An adagio dance by two ducks is interrupted by a hungry fox who starts to chase the ducks. One of the ducks picks up a pitchfork and hurls it at the fox. It misses the fox and jabs Andy with such impact that he's hurled high into the air. Andy's wig, hooked onto his ears, forms a parachute, and he continues to lead the orchestra as he floats gently down. The cat, who has been annoyed with the whole proceedings from the very beginning, finally puts an end to the concert, but not until the orchestra has played the final bars of Franz von Suppe's "Poet and Peasant" overture.
