Colonel Dan Cupid and his matchmaking babies bring together two very difficult people: a prudish spinster and a bulbous-nosed dyspeptic.

A look into the whole cupid operation; we see how the process is supposed to work, with cupids practicing their archery, and the couples handed off to the stork. But there's one particularly resistant couple (the man is a W.C. Fields caricature) who takes the whole crew to finally corral. Written by Jon Reeves <>

No Great Entertainment.
10 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This cartoon was included as an extra on the W.C. Fields DVD - "The Great Man", and I watched with great curiosity as to the motivation for its inclusion.

Cartoons of this period can often be great fun to watch, but not this! I can't imagine anyone getting much entertainment from it today, and it's hard to imagine how anyone ever did. No great story or plotting. No great wit in the dialogue. No great artistic values.

Only of interest to me for showing how established movie characters of the time - in this case W.C. Fields - were often irrelevantly inserted in cartoons.
