This MGM short, which stars an all-dog cast, is about Trixie and Fido and their evil boss. They all work at the Dogville Department Store but the boss has his eye on Trixie and so frames Fido for murder. Trixie is convinced that her man (er, dog rather) is innocent and works feverishly to save him from the electric chair. Written by
Another in MGM's "A Dogville Comedy" series, which featured dogs looking uncomfortable in human clothing. Hopefully, the "crying" puppy being diapered didn't get stuck with too many safety pins. The plot concerns a fair-haired pooch named "Trixie" who draws a marriage proposal from handsome co-worker "Fido". But, their boss at the "Dogville Dept. Store" also desires "Trixie". So, to get rid of "Fido", the dastardly "Mr. Barker" frames him for murder. While "Trixie" weeps, "Fido" is sent to the "Dogville Penitentiary" where he awaits execution in the electric chair "The Big Dog House" was patterned after the studio's prison hit "The Big House" (1930), with the ending chase resembling the "modern" portion of "Intolerance" (1916).
