Storyline

Flip opens his barbershop by setting out his barber pole in the morning. When a gluttonous pig mistakes the pole for a large piece of candy and begins eating it, Flip makes a new pole of a cat's striped tail. A furry dog comes in for a trim. Flip and his associates give him a shave and a shoe shine while other patrons dance by the piano. Written by Melissa

The title says it all here.

The plot here in this early Flip the Frog-Flip opens a barber shop. The rest is sight gags, some very funny, but little else and the pacing is a bit slow. The cartoon is made, however, by an especially good sight gag right at the beginning and by the strangest barber shop quartet in cinematic history, that I've seen, at any rate. Good, but I've seen too much that as better to ever rate it higher than "good". Worth watching.
