The terrible tempered Mr. Bang is commuting to work. When the trolley takes more than 5 seconds to arrive, he follows the tracks to the Skipper's house, where he bets him $10 he won't get to work on time. So motivated, the Skipper cuts breakfast short, but he hasn't paid the bill and his power is off. His wife rigs a sail, which gets him going, but a typhoon blows them off course. They land atop Mr. Bang's train. A tunnel knocks the trolley off the train and Mr. Bang into the train but he hasn't paid the $10 bet. The Skipper's wife, Powerful Katrinka, reels in the railroad track to bring the train back, then gets the $10 from Mr. Bang. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Humor May Be Dated, But The Animation Is Excellent
15 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was my first look at a cartoon "featuring The Terrible Tempered Mr. Bang, Powerful Katrinka and The Skipper."

Most of the humor was a little too dated to be funny but the artwork and the direction are superb, especially for a cartoon so old. I marveled just looking at some of these wild scenes as an old conductor tries to get the crabby Mr. Bang to his destination on time in this old trolley. Some of the action is pretty amazing, especially when a typhoon comes along. They had a lot of overhead shots and other good "camera angles" to show what was happening, which is why I mention the excellent "direction."

The trolley operator, known only as The Skipper, was a cool old guy but his big wife "Katrinka" was the star of the show.

The humor was pretty basic and corny but the rest of it was well thought out, meaning this cartoon has more going for it than meets the eye. Don't let the weak humor stop you from appreciating this effort. For something done 70 years ago, this is pretty sharp stuff, animation-wise.
