Aboard a battleship staffed by anthropomorphic cats, most of whom are singing "Shovin' Right off for Home" as a chorale group, Conrad swabs the deck. He is interrupted by Daffy and his pranks. The two chase and torment each other. All action screeches to a halt whenever the ship's diminutive captain passes, as both sailor and duck snap to attention and salute. Conrad and Daffy are being chased by a shell from one of the ship's big guns. All three, including the shell, snap to attention as the captain walks by.
Animator John McGrew borrowed much of the staging for the cartoon from Sergei Eisenstein's film The Battleship Potemkin whilst it also saw his first use of match cut where different objects in separate scenes would have the same basic shape, with McGrew giving the example of a gun and a cloud.
- The title character was voiced by Pinto Colvig.
- This is the only short featuring Conrad the Cat where he has dialogue. In his other two shorts, "The Bird Came C.O.D." and "Porky's Cafe", he is completely silent.

- The Turner "dubbed version" (both USA and EU) replaces the original 1941-55 Merrie Melodies ending music cue with the 1938-41 Merrie Melodies ending music cue.
