Average short with one joke which is decent

This is a cartoon in the Stone Age series from Fleischer studio. There will be spoilers ahead:

The title here is a play on the Fuller Brush Man. There's a company, the Fuller Brush Company, which sold household cleaning items door to door at the time. Fuller still exists at this time. A feature film with the title The Fuller Brush Man was made in 1948.

This short is a funny but minor effort about a door-to-door salesman in prehistoric days. He has a cart drawn by a dinosaur and he sells household supplies and other things. He doesn't have a whole lot of luck making sales to housewives, with one housewife tricking him into actually cleaning her home for her without buying anything and another one managing to sell him something instead.

He then tries to sell something to a man using a chisel to write on a stone tablet, trying to get him to buy a jackhammer! The man expresses his displeasure rather forcefully.

We then get to the longest, most drawn out joke here, where two cavemen begin to argue and it escalates as both buy clubs from the salesman. Gradually, more and more participants join what becomes a melee, most buying clubs until the salesman is sold out. He leaves one step ahead of the posse.

The best joke comes at the end, as he leaves.

This short is worth watching once.
