Bosko is tak­ing a bath while hum­ming “Singing in the Bath­tub,” play­ing every­thing around him like a musi­cal instru­ment. Even the bath­tub gets up and dances. Bosko rides a stream of water out his win­dow, and calls for his car.

While dri­ving, Bosko plays “Tip-Toe Through the Tulips” on his har­mon­ica, and picks up some flow­ers. He arrives at Honey’s house while she is bathing upstairs. Honey sees Bosko out of her bath­room win­dow and quickly gets dressed.

Wait­ing out­side, Bosko hides the flow­ers behind his back, but a goat eats them. Bosko begins to cry, but Honey calls out from her bal­cony: “Don’t cry Bosko! I still loves you!” Bosko feels bet­ter, and then kicks the goat in the behind. He takes some parts from his car and makes a sax­o­phone out of them. Honey pours a tub of soapy water from her bal­cony into the sax, caus­ing it to blow bub­bles up into the air. Honey jumps off her bal­cony and dances on the bub­bles, even­tu­ally mak­ing her way down to the ground, where she and Bosko play her front path like a xylophone.

The happy cou­ple dri­ves off in the car and smooch. Along the way a lazy cow that won’t budge blocks their path. After being spat on by the cow, Bosko decides to run it over. The car then hits a bump that sends Bosko fly­ing out of the car, split­ting him into eight minia­ture Bosko’s. He pulls him­self together, and then helps push the car up a hill.

After reach­ing the top the car starts to speed down­hill, with Bosko chas­ing after it. Bosko grabs a rope attached to the car, but he’s dragged over rocks and trees and ends up in front of the run­away auto­mo­bile. The car goes off a cliff and lands in a pond. Bosko and Honey end up float­ing in their car-turned-bathtub, while Bosko cheer­fully plays “Singing in the Bath­tub” with reeds on the lily pads.
