Hapless, helpless dog and a flea looking for a home.
This cartoon from MGM has lots of laughs (mainly at the dog's expense) and takes a wry and unusual look at the life of the flea - for example, he cuts trees down with an axe (actually the dog's hairs) and puts up a home sweet home sign.
A romp in usual slapstick style, like other contemporary cartoons such as Tom & Jerry, The Homeless Flea creates two likable characters and is genuinely funny. Nice Technicolor too, and some neat effects, especially when the flea hides behind eye-glasses and within a lamp, causing the dog to panic and think there are more than one of him.
