Travis Paints The Town is the eighth episode of the first season.


Bob is called away from a job, leaving Roley alone with a paint machine and gives Spud the opportunity to get up to mischief, which he does by tricking Travis into going across town unknowingly towing the paint machine instead of his trailer. After the situation was sorted out, Farmer Pickles and Bob have Spud clean up the white lines as a punishment.
