Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy's plane runs out of gas and lands in the African jungle. After a short comedy routine between the two, some natives come by and insist that they stay for dinner. The question then becomes what (or who) will the dinner be. Written by

Edgar Bergen and his dummy Charlie McCarthy's plane goes down in the jungles of Africa after they run out of gas. Soon cannibals come up on them and want them for dinner. Being 1933 and seeing the title, you should expect some rather racist humor and you get it here. The black natives are constantly joked on about being cannibals and there's even mention of other stereotypes so if you're sensitive then you might want to stay away. If you're not sensitive then you might want to stay away as well because there's not too many laughs here. In fact, there's not a single laugh in the film even though it does stay interesting just as a form of this is what kept people entertained back in the day. This is, I think, my third Bergen and McCarthy short and I haven't been overly entertained by any of them. The jokes are rather bland and way too obvious to work but perhaps those in 1933 found them funny.
