Dreamy Dud commands his dog Wag to do a few tricks. The charming canine happily performs them, plus a few mischievous ones of his own, including engaging Dud in a little dance and tying up the boy with his leash. Later, while Wag has a semi-friendly encounter with a cat, Dud spies an old gentleman smoking a pipe. The gentleman falls asleep and Dud steals the pipe. "Here's where I make Pittsburgh look like a million dollars worth of sunshine!" he tells his dog. He smokes the pipe and his exhalations form the face of the old gentleman, then a beautiful woman, then the words, "You're a bad boy." Dud laughs at this, but then the smoke turns into a demon-like spirit who aims to fix him good. The spirit grabs Dud and lifts him high into the air. The distraught Wag is soon up to his neck in a flood of his own tears. Meanwhile, the spirit hooks Dud onto an unfriendly crescent moon. Dud cheers up the moon by telling him a joke, but the moon laughs so hard that he knocks off Dud, who falls back... Written by J. Spurlin

Dreamy Dud. He Resolves Not to Smoke (1915)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Dud, a young boy, and his dog are out playing when the boy steals a man's pipe and decides to smoke it. Soon the "Spirit of Smoke" grabs him and takes him on a trip to teach him a lesson. This early animated film isn't anything great or ground breaking but it does have a small amount of charm that makes it worth viewing for fans of early animation. Carlson does a very nice job with the direction and I'd say the story is pretty well told. The opening sequence with the boy playing with the dog isn't too funny but things start to pick up once the pipe smoking begins. The animation is a bit rough but you have to remember this is 1915.
