Young lady, I fine you 90 dollars.
Hah! That's a cinch. I got the 90 dollars right here in my stocking.
Uh-huh. Well, now reach down in the other stocking and get the 90 days that goes with it.

MGM short has Edgar Bergen and his dummy Charlie McCarthy given the right to be judges for a day where they must look over three cases. One involving a girl driving without a license plate, the next a sexy woman doing naughty things and the third dealing with a violent criminal. Needless to say, this short was made to get laughs and it actually delivers in a few spots. Your tolerance level of Bergen and McCarthy will certainly play into things but they've always been hit and miss with me. This short here is probably one of the more entertaining I've seen from the duo because it's a lot more adult in nature and I was surprised to see that this was released after the Pre-Code era because there are a few scenes where the sexual innuendo is quite obviously and in your face as McCarthy goes after a couple sexy women. None of the three "cases" are that interesting but they each manage a few small laughs.
