A random collection of gags and looping is still quite watchable, thanks to some good bits in this early Terrytoon.
While the progression of settings -- from railroad, to desert water hole, to vultures and sheep -- give this cartoon a sense of Paul Terry's staff being unable to work many settings for more than one or two jokes, there are some nice choices made. Among them are the scary way the vultures are drawn -- like skeletons, particularly the blank-eyed heads. In addition, the better gags are clustered near the end. Although the weak starting gags and the abrupt transitions make for a less than interesting start, the ending makes up for that.
