An Entertaining Short Comedy With Plenty of Energy
8 February 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This entertaining short comedy has plenty of energy, in addition to some good material and a good cast headed by Mabel Normand and 'Fatty' Arbuckle. The comedy builds up nicely as things develop, and the two stars get plenty of help from the supporting performers.

The story has Mabel wandering off from her parents, and getting involved in some fairgrounds antics with Arbuckle and Al St. John. Most of them are amusing. One or two of them might perhaps be just a bit off-putting, but the tone is good-natured enough that it isn't a real problem. There is one very funny sequence with Mabel and Arbuckle on a slide, and a number of the sequences have some nostalgia value, in the way that they preserve the feel of an old-fashioned fairground, in addition to the comedy itself.

Things also build up pretty well when Mabel's parents come back on the scene, and the last part works pretty well in capping off a good comedy.
