Toby is the night janitor at a museum, and he polishes and cleans all the statues. The latter come to life, of course, and the results can be humorous. I mean, seeing a dinosaur gargle with mouthwash, Rodin's "The Thinker" doing a Russian dance, etc., is pretty wild.
Toby has fun brushing a statues' teeth, or clipping the toenails on another, etc. His mop then turns into a harp and he plays music for them. It's typical early '30 imaginative animation with sights you don't often see.
The print is so-so but I am just grateful we are still able to see some of these early animated short. Hey, this one is 77 years old, and was made just around the time sound was introduced to movies.
