Storyline

Flip schemes to get himself hired as an office boy at the Screwy Nuts & Bolts factory, especially because of the attractive typist. He starts well, using a cat's tongue to lick a stack of envelopes. Before long, the cat starts chasing a mouse around the office and causing more trouble than Flip or the secretary can handle. Her dress gets caught in the duplicating machine and removed. In all the confusion, the boss arrives, and even though Flip kills the mouse (after it lands on his head), he gets fired. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A bit dated, but reasonably fun and worth a look

This short is nothing terribly special-it hasn't aged well, the characters aren't very memorable and the "plot" is thinner than rice paper. There are some nice visual gags, though, and the technical aspects are quite good (understandably so-if Ub Iwerks was involved, technical merit is a given), even if Flip the Frog is about as dull as a butter knife. Still worth a look, particularly if you like excellent animation.
