RKO Takes a Chance on a New Shorts Series
12 March 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Scott Elliott wants to eat the trout he has caught. The in-laws come over for dinner, sell him insurance. The dog eats his dinner and gets sick and Scott thinks the veterinarian's prescription is for him in this amusing entry to the short-lived series.

1951 was very late in the game for RKO to begin a new series of short subjects, but the division was a mainstay and needed a replacement for Edgar Kennedy since that stalwart's death in 1948. The threat of television was still seen as just that. The result here was a silly bit of fluff that amuses, but given the fact that television was about to go into major production of sitcoms, starting with I LOVE LUCY and other comedies from Desilu, this series would end after only a few more entries.
