Storyline

A cute novelty short which is highlighted by the amazing performance of trained birds from the Far East. The reel presents animals who imitate man in a number of stunts such as seals juggling, bulls racing, an elephant playing the harmonica and monkeys performing in the zoo. The birds, which come from the parrot family, pull a miniature rickshaw, drive a tiny automobile, shoot a bow and arrow, a small cannon and do various stunts on a trapeze. This is definitely recommended. Written by review from BOXOFFICE magazine, December 17, 1938; page 21
