Amusing final entry
6 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

The Newlyweds' Pest is the final entry in the 2 reel silent 1926-1929 Universal-Stern "Newlyweds and Their Baby" series based on George McManus' comic strip.

Gus Meins directs the basic plot of the kid raising mischief wherever he goes.

Raymond Ganly's 7-20-1929 Motion Picture News review states: "Snookums and the Newlyweds should amuse the average movie-goer who passes through the doors of the neighborhood theater."

The main cast includes: Joe Young (Robert's older brother) as Mr. Newlywed; Molly Malone (who worked in several Arbuckle-Keaton comedies) as Mrs. Newlywed in her last known film appearance; and Sunny "Jim" McKeen as Snookums.

When Stern quit making this popular series, Universal decided to produce a new group of 10 sound Sunny Jim shorts featuring the youngster. Check out my review on the first one "Baby Talks".

A tragic note: Sunny McKeen died of Blood Poisoning at the age of 8 on April 2nd 1933.
