One of the better "Jimmy Jump" shorts, 31 August 2013
Author: Paularoc from United States

James Parrott, Charley Chase's younger brother, directed this short about the cowardly Jimmy. As one of the title cards says "Even the 'gang' has got Jimmy's goat - they've threatened to sic their pet rabbits on him." The gang members are the "Our Gang" kids but not the first of their film appearances, which was in 1922. Everyone bullies Jimmy, especially Lem Tucker who is chasing after Jimmy's true love, the doctor's daughter. When the doctor tells Jimmy that he needs to diet a week, Jimmy hears it as he will die in a week. Determined to 'go out like a man,' Jimmy gets tough with the kids and with Lem. There are a lot of funny bits in this one including one where Jimmy rides a bull to save the doctor's daughter from Lem. A highly entertaining Chase short.
