Crazy Credits

Many of these films were made before the American Humane Association began its efforts to prevent injury or death to animal performers. Today, stunts are done with caution and the risk of injury has been seriously minimized... thanks to the role of the American Humane Association. See more »

All the numerous clips & Cameos are a delight of Humor to me!
11 August 2009 | by 63x927is58401See all my reviews

I am sure that everyone else would do a "Thumb Down" as if he and she were "Arthur Fonzarelli" of "Happy Days", in the 1970's. I like to watch the clips & try to figure out which movies, they originally come from. I like the scenes of "Lassie, Come Home", Flipper", "Daisy" ("Blondie & Dagwood Bumstead's dog). The top leading actor & top leading actress were Arthur Lake had character role of "Dagwood Bumstead" & Penny Singleton had character role of "Blondie Bumstead" in the numerous & humorous (to me) movies. Two old scenes, I would like to find out are; when the chimpanzee dropped a coconut onto an elephant & the elephant got its revenge, by getting a trunk of water & spraying it back to the troublesome chimpanzee! & the scene of when a dog was brought to a house, it saw the "husband's wife" with a "terribly dirty" or very angry or irate look, on her face, immediately & frightening it away,as if it thought it's life was being threatened, almost, it then sped off in a hurry​! There are too many to title & try to remembering the scenes.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT: IF it is available, (like at TCM), I would like to purchase it on a prerecorded digital video disc, AKA a DVD! 63x927is58401.
