Flip pulls up at his girlfriend's house in a cricket-drawn carriage. They play the harmonica and they ride along until they are attacked by a pelican. The cricket is eaten, but Flip and his girl escape. They then go swimming in a nearby swimming hole. The pelican spots them and tries again to eat them, but is swallowed by a giant fish when he dives in the water. Written by Melissa

Flip & His Girl Tap Dancing In The Beginning Of The 'Talkie' Age
6 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A huge grasshopper pulling Flip The Frog in his chariot. That's the best thing about cartoons: you never know what crazy sight you'll see next. Artists can draw things you could never have happen in real life. This craziness has always been a part of animated work, as demonstrated in these first years of "talkies," which included cartoons. (There isn't much dialog here, though.)

Anyway, we see Flip taking his girl out for a ride in his new "wheels." He's mad she's late, fiddling around upstairs in front of a mirror as women like to do, and throws a tantrum but quickly behaves as soon as she shows up....a typical male response.Soon, the two of them are traveling down the road singing (him) and playing the harmonica (her).

A shocking thing then happens after a giant pelican enters the scene. I won't say what it is, but it's very unexpected, even in a cartoon.

Actually, most of this cartoon is really just visuals set to tap-dance music.....and if you like to watch tap dancers - even animated frogs - you'll like this old UB Iwerks cartoon.
