Meet the Champ is the first of six Paramount comedy shorts starring Walter Catlett and Eugene Palette.

Phil L. Ryan produced this series for the 1933-34 season.

Del Lord directs a great cast which includes beautiful Dorothy Granger and future Oscar winner Walter Brennan as a stuttering announcer.

Brennan would repeat his stuttering bit in this series second short Sailors Beware.

The plot: Carrying a suitcase marked the Champ, Eugene goes to the fair to compete in a cow milking contest. Side show barker Walter and his protégé Dorothy mistakenly think he is a fighter and want to manage him all the way to Madison Square Garden.

Alpha Video has released the first two shorts on DVD. This series is a must see for comedy fans. Hopefully the other four will soon be found and made available.
