So Does This Cartoon
boblipton from New York City

In the aftermath of the success of their first animated feature,
GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, the Fleischers tried to spin off some of the
characters into series. The annoying Gabby got a few cartoons, so did
the spies, and in this one, the carrier pigeon the spies use is named
'Twinkletoes' and given a starring role.
Twinkletoes is working for an express company and is given the task of
delivering a parrot to the royal palace. Unhappily, while competently
done, it lacks the hallmark of the better Fleischer cartoons, a
constant barrage of well-timed gags and asides to the audience. The
result is decent, but of real interest only to completists.
