Farm Frolics

An artist’s hand draws a farm which comes to life with a variety of barnyard animals as references to visual puns and running gags to follow. An off-screen narrator shows the animals found on the typical American farm. Each animal surprises us with its own special gag. A championship racehorse demonstrates a gallop, then, to show off a canter, does an Eddie Cantor imitation. A running gag has several piglets constantly watching an alarm clock, which goes off at the end, sending the piglets scrambling to Mother Hog, who sighs, “Oh, dear, every day it’s the same thing.”
