At a department store, George seeks help in getting a bone out of his throat. No one will help him; lunch counter girl Gracie wants to talk about airplanes.Written by

Throughout "Pulling a Bone", George Burns keeps telling everyone that he has a bone stuck in his throat. This is a stupid idea for a plot for many reasons. First, if this was the case, folks WOULD pay attention to him. Second, if he has a bone in his throat he'd be coughing and would have difficulty talking....but he never coughs and he talks and talks and talks. It really felt as if the plot was completely unnecessary in this one...even more so than the other Burns & Allen shorts. That's saying a lot as the plots of their others are awfully thin as well!
So, despite this, is it any good? Not especially...mostly because it just didn't seem very funny. Overall, a disappointing picture...one you could easily skip.
