The Flea Got My Biggest Laugh
7 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The boys are proprietors of the "K-9 Dog Laundry." They run the operation like a car wash, putting a dog on a conveyor belt with the washing and drying methods a little primitive. The story is about the boys accidentally "kidnapping" a baby and what happens afterward.

Both the baby and the Dalmatian in here was a very-trained to go through all the shenanigans and stay put. Made today, PC groups would be condemning this for child and animal abuse.

I admit I did laugh out loud at the flea yelling "Ohh, you got me!" The last five minutes are the highlight with a slapstick chase scene and Curly as "Mrs. O'Toole talking to Irish cop (Bud Jamison, a factor actor of Three Stooges fans) is funny.

Overall, however, the short is just "fair."
