To Itch His Own is a 1958 Merrie Melodies cartoon 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.

Shown on:


  • This is the debut of the character Mighty Angelo. However, he wouldn't make another appearance until New Looney Tunes.
  • This was the final cartoon Carl Stalling worked on. He retired this year and died twelve years after this was released.
