The Magic Fluke

The Crow narrates how he and "Lips" Fox where the best of friends, until Fox is offered a contract to conduct the city's symphony orchestra, leaving Crow in the cold. Later on, Crow - now on skid row - chances upon Fox, who is performing as Foxini. Crow quickly discovers that that his old friend is without a baton, grabbing a nearby magician's wand for Fox to use, which starts to cause magic-related problems.
