Storyline

Poor Uncle Josh is trying to get to sleep, but being constantly bedeviled by a fellow in red long underwear with horns. A short early trick editing film using a stationary camera much more valuable for its historical, rather than entertainment value. Written by bughouse

The first example of a franchise movie character!
2 May 2003 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

The first example I knowof where one certain character comes back in multiple sequels. Edison's "Uncle Josh" character certainly had a bad time of it but his misadventures make for comedic films that are still enjoyable to-day a century later. In this one Uncle Josh simply wants a good nights sleep but of course he gets none. His nightshirt has a life of its own and jumps around the room, his bed vamishes into thin air only to reappear in another corner; and then someone who might be The Devil himself pops up to insure there is no rest for the weary! Okay so the special effects were inspired by the films of Georges Melies. In fact this whole short looks similar to the Melies film THE INN WHERE NO MAN RESTS but it is still fun. Josh would be back again in two more films.
