Storyline

Comedy with Lloyd and his dog, Buddy, who are trying to rid Philyburg of a swarm of flies prior to the city's annual toboggan contest and unveiling of an outdoor fountain. Hamilton and his dog pal, use various means to kill flies in humorous ways. But in chasing a frog, Buddy ends up in the city's reservoir with mud flying everywhere and polluting Philyburg's fresh water supply. As the fountain is turned on at its dedication, the city residents are sprayed with brackish water. Blame is pointed squarely at Buddy and he and Lloyd are evicted from Philyburg. A forthcoming freight train provides the pair with their means of escaping the hostile citizenry. The second half of the film finds Lloyd and Buddy now aboard a freight car with four hobos who've been consuming whiskey. The combination of whiskey, Buddy, and some loose chicks provide the slapstick comedy as our anti-heroes adapt to their railroad car environment. Written by David Sedman
