Crazy Credits

Many of these films were made before the American Humane Association began its efforts to prevent injury or death to animal performers. Today, stunts are done with caution and the risk of injury has been seriously minimized... thanks to the role of the American Humane Association. See more »

Animal crack ups
3 April 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a hilarious doco which could best be described as the THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT of animal scenes from Hollywood's history. From silent era Rin Tin Tin and monkey/chimp comedies to Asta the Wonder Dog from the Thin Man films, to horse operas and Flipper, every famous and infamous critter gets a scene ....and most are very funny. There is a theme song like That's Entertainment too. Released clumsily in the mid 70s this is a comedy compilation up there to be enjoyed with DAYS OF THRILLS AND LAUGHTER, BIG PARADE OF COMEDY, and the MGM musical docos as well. I would assume it is impossible to find on tape and rarely on TV, this is great fun and well worth saving into your collection. Thehuman component is as startling as the animals because every major Hollywood star is seen here as well...Fetch and lap it up!
