Ignatz's plans to surreptitiously lob a brick at Krazy's head sometimes succeed; other times Officer Pupp outsmarts Ignatz and imprisons him. The interventions of Coconino County's other anthropomorphic animal residents, and even forces of nature, occasionally change the dynamic in unexpected ways.

Ignatz Mouse cannot help but throw a brick at Krazy Kat's head which tends to get him into trouble with Offissa Pupp. Herriman constantly finds clever ways to play with this scenario as you. Far from requiting that love, Ignatz persecutes Krazy by throwing bricks at him/her.

Krazy, however, takes these brick-blows as love-pats and resents the interference of Offissa Pupp. Klein's partial quote from Maltin's book was, " but it was a senseless story, throwing bricks, and that was the end of it." and causing them to rain down onto the head of Offissa Pupp.

The brick-throwing machine gun too is revealed, and Pupp looks ready to clobber Ignatz. The mouse looks him in the face and laughs musically at the police dog. Ignatz hurls a brick at Krazy Kat, who misinterprets it as an expression of love.
