Nippers suffers from indigestion, which is a particular problem in the morning. Thus, Nipper's mornings find him irritable and impatient.

Turkey is the complete opposite. He is an alcoholic, thus, his mornings are productive, and his afternoons are pretty much a waste of time.

Put these two characters together, and we have some very funny moments.
