The cartoon starts, in traditional fashion, with Max Fleischer’s hand picking up a pen, dipping it into the inkwell, and beginning to draw KoKo the Clown. However, Max has invented a new, electric, drawing device. He uses this to finish the drawing and then, with a somewhat maniacal grin on his face, he turns the device on poor, hapless KoKo.
To make amends, Max then creates an automatic drawing machine for KoKo – which, in typical Fleischer fashion, develops into a series of mischievous adventures and finally devolves into outright catastrophe!
