Flea rights activists
1 June 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Farina, Joe, and Harry are led astray when their dog-powered go-karts try to follow a cat up a tree. Hedda Hopper, president of the "Be Kind to Animals Society," lectures them to tears and they become animal rights activists. Joe refuses to kill a flea that keeps biting him (because fleas have souls, too). Wheezer dreams he is standing trial-- with a judge and jury composed entirely of animals.

This was one of the last of the "Our Gang" silent shorts. Great stuff.
