This is an interesting short from Leon Schlesinger and Looney Tunes as Buddy and his dog Bozo go to the "Lost World" where they encounter a group of cavemen who take them hostage but thankfully there's a dinosaur that grows a crush on Buddy. This Warner short is interesting on a number of levels with the obvious one being the fact that this is a pretty clever homage to 1925's THE LOST WORLD. I thought for the most part that the animation was extremely good and the director kept everything going at such a fast pace that you really didn't have any time to grow bored. One of the best moments in the film happens towards the end when the dinosaur comes to the rescue and chases one of the cavemen through a door and then we see him and the dino's head coming out of another. Another interesting aspect is that there are three cavemen who are clearly spoofing The Three Stooges. Trying to spoof the Stooges probably wasn't the best idea since the Stooges themselves are pretty much a spoof but fans of them will be mildly entertained by how they're shown here. One more thing that works in this short is a very funny bit where Bozo finds a "caveman" acting like a dog and taking off with a bone, which Bozo then tries to dig one up but gets more than he can chew.
