To Itch His Own is a 1958 Merrie Melodies short directed by Chuck Jones.


Mighty Angelo is billed as "The World's Strongest Flea" by the urban circus at which he performs. Angelo decides to take a vacation on some quiet, country dog and hops into the fur of a shaggy pooch sleeping on a suburban estate. When a belligerent bulldog disturbs the pooch's and Angelo's sleep, Angelo decides to fight the bulldog. The bulldog is befuddled by the unseen powerhouse that drops bricks on his head, pulls him through a knothole in a fence, and whacks him on his head and backside with a mallet.
