One of the best of the Musty Suffer short subjects and, like the others that rank that high, possessed of a sadistic sense of humor that will make you laugh like a loon and then seek therapy -- but it will do no good, because it will still be funny.

In this one, Musty wakes with a toothache and goes to a painless dentist who offers to pull it out without charge. That's when the sadism starts as we descend into a George Melies world where Musty is almost drowned, beaten and then roasted for the rest of the movie. Shouldn't be funny, you say? It doesn't matter much what you think is funny. Try to watch it without laughing.
