This film was included in the three DVD set "Saved From the Flames"--a collection of mostly ephemeral movies that have managed to avoid turning to powder, catching fire or melting--something that usually happened with the nitrate film stock used up through the 1950s.
This is one of a ton of cartoons the Fleischer Brothers made starring Ko-Ko the Clown--their star before they began to specialize in Betty Boop and Popeye cartoons. Like the typical Ko-Ko film, it includes live action and cartoon--with Koko and other characters jumping in and out of the ink well. Quite enjoyable today but also not particularly good or bad compared to other Ko-Ko films.
By the way, this film and many of the other Ko-Ko films I've seen had sound effects and music added later. During the sound era, many silent cartoons like this one had this done in order to satisfy the increasing demand for sound.
