All the numerous clips & Cameos are a delight of Humor to me!, 11 August 2009
Author: 63x927is58401 from United States

I am sure that everyone else would do a "Thumb Down" as if he and she were "Arthur Fonzarelli" of "Happy Days", in the 1970's. I like to watch the clips & try to figure out which movies, they originally come from. I like the scenes of "Lassie, Come Home", Flipper", "Daisy" ("Blondie & Dagwood Bumstead's Dog). Arthur Lake portrayed "Dagwood" & Penny Singleton portrayed "Blondie", in the numerous & humorous (to me) movies. Two old scenes, I would like to find out are; when the chimpanzee dropped a coconut on an elephant & the elephant got its revenge, by getting a trunk of water & spraying the troublesome chimpanzee! & the scene of when a dog was brought to a house, it saw the "husband's wife" with a 'terribly dirty' look, frightening it away, in a hurry! There are too many to title & try remembering the scenes.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT: If it is available, I would like to purchase it on a prerecorded DVD! 63x927is58401.
