In this humorous tale of rumors and misunderstandings, the small-town stray becomes both a villain and a hero in the course of one unusually eventful afternoon. Thirsty, Murphy steals a sip of Ludgie Brown the Vegetable Man’s foamy root beer. When Mr. Brown catches the canine thief, Murphy escapes.
Running through town with a root-beer mustache, Murphy is mistaken for a mad dog. The rumors fly as the townspeople join in the chase, and Murphy’s attempts to save a little girl from drowning almost result in disaster.
Cheer as Murphy becomes a “wanted” dog (in more ways than one) and follow the development and ultimate dispelling of the rumors that plague him.
