Director: Paul Terry


Farmer Al Falfa is in a bad mood thanks to the bumpy ride he is getting in his clunker of a car. A little water in the radiator seems to help, even though the water Al Falfa pumps is full of fish. Eventually, an enormous fish pops out and steals his car. Meanwhile, various animals are getting drunk down by the "Speakeasy Soda Fountain." It seems there's something more than soda in the drinks, which cause its imbibers to pass out, breathe smoke and flames, and worse. Al Falfa arrives at the speakeasy. After a brief misadventure with a blind pig, whose tail the farmer tries to use as a corkscrew, Al Falfa takes a very strong drink and floats up to the heavens. In space, he has strange encounters with weird creatures on various planets. More surprises are in store for everyone, including the identity of the title character. Written by J. Spurlin

Small Town Sheriff is interesting for some weird images that appear in this Paul Terry cartoon
31 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was one of Paul Terry's Aesop Fables cartoons he made during the silent era. In this one, Farmer Al Falfa's car breaks down while a cat in a speakeasy is selling alcoholic beverages to a mouse (who quickly passes out) and an elephant (whose mouth goes on fire which the cat douses with his seltzer bottle while the trunk sprays that seltzer back on the cat!). After the farmer takes his sip, he starts hallucinating like crazy...Having seen this twice on YouTube, this rare silent cartoon is interesting for some of the weird images that pervade during the last three minutes of this cartoon. As for the title, well, all I'll say is that reveal comes at the end. So on that note, if you're interested in many of these vintage and obscure silent cartoons, I say Small Town Sheriff is worth a look.
