Fairly Good Short Comedy
25 March 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly good short comedy that makes reasonable use of its characters and possibilities. Some of it is a little too silly, but a lot of it works pretty well. The best laughs in it probably come more from the situation itself than from any of the specific gags.

Alkali Ike seems to have been a rather popular character for a while. In this feature, he and Mustang Pete get into a rivalry over a woman, and the two begin a one-upmanship battle while trying impress her, with consequences that are generally amusing. There's nothing especially creative, but it has an easygoing style that makes it pleasant to watch. Its probably a little better than average for the short comedies of its era.
