Angry that he is late for their date at a party, Minnie calls Mickey, who has been sleeping all this time. Pluto answers the phone, licking it when he hears Minnie's voice, his drool somehow splattering onto Minnie from the other end. She wipes her face and asks him to take the phone to Mickey. As soon as Minnie wakens him, she warns Mickey that if he doesn't arrive in the next fifteen minutes, their relationship is over. With the help of Pluto, Mickey gets well-dressed in a tuxedo and ready for the date and leaves his house, unaware that he left the tickets for the party. Pluto notices the tickets and quickly takes them to bring to Mickey. Rushing to the party, Mickey's top hat flies into a garbage can.
Mickey reaches in the garbage can to get the black top hat, but Pluto bumps into the garbage can, accidentally knocking the garbage can down the street with Mickey in it and crashes into a street lamp. Mickey emerges from the garbage can with his tuxedo clothes wrecked and finds out that he reached his destination, where Minnie greets him and compliments him on his costume. This works out for Mickey, since the party he and Minnie are going to is a "Hard Times" costume party. Minnie tells Mickey that they can go in as soon as Mickey gives the tickets. Mickey realizes that he left the tickets at home, but Pluto arrives just in time to give them the tickets, making everything turn out alright at the end.
