While in the woods studying bugs, Krazy Kat and Ignatz Mouse encounter a sleeping bee and an angry elephant.
Surprisingly, the animal hero became widely popular in American animation only in the 1920s, especially with "Felix the Cat." The earlier Krazy Kat series (1916-29), based loosely on the comic strip by George Herriman, features lovelorn Krazy and the brick-tossing object of his strange obsession, Ignatz Mouse. As with the next four films, these brief films were initially part of William Randolph Hearsts International Film Service newsreels.
