Two dogs known as The Two Curious Puppies (one large and brown; the other small and white with a black tail) visit an All Electric Model Home, as the sign outside bills it. The "modern conveniences" inside prove to be anything but convenient for the two canines. The dogs tangle with the Electric Dish Washer, the Napkin Folder and the Automatic Piano that has a panoply of musical instruments, and even mechanical singers, appearing out of little trap doors. The worst "convenience" is the Automatic Sweeper, an annoying robot that suddenly appears to sweep up anything the second it touches the floor. To the small dog's frustration, he even sweeps up the dog bones from the Dog Bone Dispenser. Written by J. Spurlin

Ho-hum, except for the piano sequence
26 May 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

Here's another short featuring the two curious dogs, not my favorite Warner Brothers creations. Here, the dogs wander into a futuristic house where they battle with technology. A great setting, unfortunately there are many wasted opportunities for comedy. The piano sequence, however, is far above the rest of the film. A better version of this short is "House Hunting Mice" which uses several of the same gags.
