Storyline

Flip is a dentist. A walrus in the waiting room is apprehensive when he hears the screams of earlier patients, but he is wrestled into the chair. Flip tries to pull the bad tooth, but keeps getting laundry, small cars, etc. He drills, but the bit breaks. Finally, he uses gas (a skunk) to put the walrus out. The walrus comes to just in time to find that Flip has put a lit stick of dynamite in his mouth; walrus removes his dentures and the dynamite, and puts them under Flip. The whole office blows sky high. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

If you dread going to the dentist, Flip's "skills" will only reinforce your current attitude!
3 November 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly nice cartoon visually, with some very funny sight gags, but Flip's talents do not extend themselves to the science of dentistry. While he doesn't come close to the dentist in Little Shop of Horrors (either version), Flip is about as effective here as he is in most of his other endeavors. Not terribly exciting, but watchable and you'll get a laugh or two along the way. Not the best Flip the Frog and not the worst. Worth watching and good to have in print. Recommended.
