Storyline

In a charming dining room a very attractive young lady is seen seated at the table, evidently waiting for the caller who is to share a quiet little dinner for two. A moment later a dude of the regular chappy type enters and seats himself at the table. As soon as the meal commences the inevitable wicked small boy sneaks in unobserved, and producing a piece of rope ties one end securely to the dude's coat tails and fastens the other to the table-cloth. He then crawls under the table and in great glee awaits the result of his operations. At this moment an unexpected interruption occurs. The door is flung rudely open and papa enters the peaceful scene, at sight of whom the dude rises from the table and makes a dash for the door. Unfortunately for him his coat-tails are securely tied to the table cloth, and as he makes his exit he drags off the crockery and table-cloth and overturns the table with a tremendous crash, being forcibly assisted out of the door by the irate parent's shoe-toe, ... Written by Edison Films (1901)

Subtle family entertainment!
1 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Maude's Naughty Little Brother" is a completely ridiculous film and it lacks subtlety and believability. However, back in the day, folks probably laughed at this one—though its style would soon be outdated by better and more subtle humor.

A man is passing the time with a lady who you assume is his girlfriend. However, her little brother is on hand to make a mess of things. He climbs behind and under the table—tying string all over the man's chair so that when he tries to stand, the table will be upset. However, there is no way the 'kid' could do this because he's quite large and climbing under the table is silly as he's just too big and his clever plan is inconceivably impossible. So, when another man (perhaps her father) enters the room and the table is upset, it seems awfully contrived and rather stupid. And, in keeping with slapstick humor, the 'dad' ends the film by slapping the crap out of Maude's little brother. Bizarre when seen in the 21st century and very primitive.
