About this item

Description Rootie begins the episode by explaining to Big Todd that he joined the army and the only bad thing is waking up early. They sing a relatable song about how they hate getting up in the morning. Next, Gala Poochie Pup excitedly shows Rootie something he found: El Squeako Mouse floating high above the clubhouse, soaring through the air on a kite. He wanted to catch baseballs, which usually fly right over his head. Mr. Deetle Doodle and company try to make a baseball especially for El Squeako Mouse. The episode's sponsor is Silvercup Bread.
