In this "Harold Teen," cartoon by Carl Ed, Harold writes his girlfriend, Lillums, a love poem. When he gets to her house, he puts his overcoat (which contains the poem) on a coat rack. Lillums' brother, Tuffy, hides a frog in the overcoat’s pocket. When Harold tries to retrieve the poem from his coat, the frog jumps out. Lillums’ dog, Pretty, eats most of the frog. A horrified Lillums breaks up with Harold. In the last panel Harold stomps on the poem while Tuffy comments on Harold’s temper.
