Flip the Frog plays a hot dog vendor at a circus, but soon finds himself chasing after a thief for stealing a woman's purse. I enjoyed some of the gags in this cartoon such as the beginning where Flip is selling a hot dog to a customer. He orders the hot dog to roll over and it dips itself into the mustard. As the customer bites into it, it jumps out of the bun and flees. This is exactly similar to the Mickey Mouse cartoon THE KARNIVAL KID. This isn't a surprise seeing as both cartoons were animated by Ub Iwerks. I also enjoy the gag where the woman slides down an ostrich whose feathers fit on her like a tutu. The ending (which I will not give away) was quite a surprise for me. Overall, I feel the animation of this short is done quite well as most of Ub's cartoons are.
