I didn't understand it, but I certainly enjoyed it.
I confess that I don't know anything about Tom Powers or his comics, but I'm guessing that his "Phables" cartoons are parodies of the morality tales that I imagine were common in the early 20th century. I had first assumed that this cartoon was just such a morality tale, until half way through it takes a hilarious turn, and it just stays absurd from then on. I'm not sure what the moral at the end of the story means, but it still made me giggle. My only complaint is with the animation and filming quality. With a storyline this clever, it would be nice if it had cleaner and clearer animation. Even for 1915, this cartoon seems pretty low-budget.
