About this item

Description Rootie opens this episode with great sadness at being a lion tamer and losing his love to a mouse. The boy genius curtains roll up to reveal El Squeako Mouse conducting acrobatics while Big Todd and Rootie sing a song about losing his love, Polka Dottie, to the swinging mouse. Gala Poochie questions El Squeako after the song to reveal that his confidence in business and love comes from the show’s sponsor Silvercup bread. Gala Poochie Pup later wants Rootie to use his “Testamajig” device to alter the properties of a baseball to help his batting percentage. The machine also warns Rootie on an incoming Poison Zoomack.
