Storyline

The grasshopper Hopalong Casserole easily outwits two birds that are modeled on Laurel and Hardy; he substitutes a bee when they think they've trapped him in a bag, he lures one off a cliff (apparently these are flightless crows), he plays "The Storm" on a piano they are hiding in, and he escapes through the closing "iris out."

Trivia

The two crows are caricatures of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. The grasshopper's name, Hopalong Casserole, is an allusion to Clarence E. Mulford's cowboy hero, Hopalong Cassidy, played in the movies by William Boyd. See more »
