Flip's Boxing Match Can Tire You Out Just Watching!
"Bully" is a Bluto-type - you know: big, gruff guy with a cigar, small bowler hat, needs a shave.....the kind of "ruffian" you see pictured in the 1930s cartoons (and feature films, sometimes.) Here, he picks a fight with poor Flip.
Before you know it, a neutral party comes along, shows the two guys a sign advertising "boxing to-night" and advises them to take it to the arena, where at least they could pick up some bucks if they're going to fight Flip isn't crazy about the idea, knowing he could get killed, but his little friend pushes him to it because they need money. Lots of folks did back in 1931. By the way, why was it always spelled "to-night" with the hyphen?
What we wind up with then, is a typical cartoon version of boxing match. That means wild sight gags which come every few seconds, as furious as the punches. Most of it is pretty good stuff, too. This is guaranteed to keep your interest. You don't dare blink, or you'll miss some gag. The ending is a bit weak but they had to find some strange way to end the fight.
Overall, this is good and another frenetic Flip The Frog cartoon, which means you're worn out when it's over!
