The Short

Plot: Chief Cummings retires from the Greenpoint Fire Department and turns to using his faithful horse Duke to pull an open carriage taxi service in town to raise the money to keep his horse. The Rascals are some of his main customers, but when a new hotshot automobile taxi service opens up, he may lose what paying customers he has. The Rascals try to rally him customers while at the same time sabotaging the competition. They route a high-tension wire through the cab, reroute the exhaust into the cab and hang a "Free Rides" sign to perturb the driver. Meanwhile, Wheezer is proving to be a bother and constantly sent off on distractions, such as hatching a crate of chicks. When they see Chief Cummings talking to the driver and Officer Mulligan, they fear the worst and run off with Duke to save him only to discover later that Mulligan loaned Cummings the money to keep the horse. Meanwhile, after telling Wheezer to go jump in the lake, three of the gang members (Farina, Joe, and Harry) rush to stop him, jumping off the bridge after him and landing head-first in mud as Wheezer hangs above them by his suspenders.
