Pixie and Dixie watch a cartoon about a mouse that beats up on cats and they are caught on the couch by Jinks. Jinks chases them back into their mouse hole. Dixie gets a telegraph that says that Cousin Tex is coming by for a visit and as soon as he's through reading it, Cousin Tex slams the door open and catches Dixie behind it. Cousin Tex is twice as big as Pixie or Dixie.
Cousin Tex is hungry and goes to get something to eat. he runs into Jinks and they begin to scuffle and Cousin Tex starts riding him like a horse. Jinks dislodges him and then Cousin Tex ropes Jinks and hog ties him. Jinks gets away when he hears that Tex is going to brand him. Jinks waits until Tex rounds the corner and he drops a wooden box on him and sits on top and contemplates how he will send Tex back. Tex burns through the box with the branding iron and it gets Jinks too.
Jinks now calls his cousin from Texas and he shows up shortly. The cousin is only about the same size as Tex and says that he has been sick lately.
