A surprisingly strong series of gags and a familiar story manage to enliven this early Van Beuren -- which animator Frank Tashlin called 'Van Boring' -- sound production, to the point where it is worth watching.
Van Beuren Studios was one of the major cartoon studios from the mid-twenties until it lost its contract with RKO in the mid-1930s. Usually its products were technically well done but weak on the creative side. In this piece, everything works well. If you like black and white animation, this one is worth a look at.
