In a musical parody of "Uncle Tom's Cabin", slaves pick cotton by the ton, Simon LeGree threatens Uncle Tom with a whip, and Krazy helps Little Eva run away on ice floes created by dumping out the blocks from an ice truck. When she dies and goes to heaven, Krazy attempts to trick St. Peter into letting him in too, but he falls earthward in time to wake up, it's all a nightmare he's been having at the theatre putting on a "Tommer" show.

Krazy Kat and Kitty Kat are in the South. They live among the slaves who are there picking cotton. This is a rough version of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and, unfortunately, it plays on black stereotypes. They lounge around, eat fried chicken, steal watermelons, and so on. Still, they are the positive characters in this short. Simon Legree is the master, swinging his whip and pushing them into subservience. Because Krazy and Kitty are supportive, they incur his wrath. I guess Krazy is black but he is a cat. There is an interesting turn of events at the end but it becomes a bit disappointing. See this just for the social commentary of 1934.
