Our tale of Dick Whittington and his faithful cat and their adventures. Dick gains employment in Alderman Fitzwarren's shop and falls in love with Alice but King Rat has Dick framed for stealing the takings. Banished from London, Dick dreams of returning as he sails abroad. Landing in Morocco following a shipwreck, Dick and his faithful cat dispatch the plague of rats that have overrun the land and kill King Rat. Pleased with the outcome, the Emperor of Morocco rewards Dick handsomely and gives him safe passage home where he marries Alice and, just for good measure, becomes London's Lord Mayor.
