Puddy at the Circus
18 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Puddy sneaks into the circus, falls in love with a cocker spaniel and gets into a fight over her in this Terrytoon.

It had been about a year since Terry's staff had visited the circus in BUG CARNIVAL. With the redesigned Puddy acting more and more human, escaping from the bulldog in police uniform and rescuing the beautiful poodle from her Apache dance, we're in the sort of twilight zone that cartoons had been visiting since Krazy Kat had fallen in love with the brick-throwing Ignatz Mouse. If Goofy is a dog, then what is Pluto? A pup? Will he grow up to be a dog, or will he remain in peonage to Mickey Mouse? At the end of this cartoon, with Puddy enough of a star to appear on a circus poster with Fifi, what sort of salary will he earn? I'm sure this question never occurred to the vast majority of the audience, but it used to worry me as a small child, watching these cartoons. That and why Mary Tyler Moore had left Dick van Dyke. I think Richie died and she left that entire life behind.
