Another gag which I don't particularly mind at all is these men snoring while playing a game of chess - and they somehow must be very good at the game by sleeping and using their mouths to do the playing. Buddy enters the scene and sees a sleepy fellow (Well, they're ALL sleepy) sleeping on a piano seat. Buddy appears to grab out one of his "jumping" beans that he got - and there was a shot of a close-up of his bucket reading that - before he used them which is just poor pacing and got mixed around with the shots.
Pancho then shoots at a local who is balancing with a vase on top of his head - but the water runs out and suddenly flowers grow - a nice sentiment gag. The mule that he appears to be riding is reluctant to stay and wants to leave (Oh yeah - "stubborn as a mule" heh-heh), but Pancho grabs the mule's tail and places it through the hole on the pole to tie it up. Before he does that - he cleans up his tail so that it looks thin enough to get through the hole. Pancho opens up the saloon doors as he's ready to cause as much trouble as possible. All the locals inside the bar hide as well as the bartender. Every time Pancho shoots a bullet at an object; there is a human head that pops out shouting out his name with horror. Yep, we all it's Pancho. Even the Marx Brothers make an appearance when he shoots a door-bed in which they all shout their names one at a time.
This is probably the shortest Buddy cartoon that I've known ever (and so far) it's only just about 6 minutes long. It wasn't bad in a short amount of time - parts of it I quite liked. I didn't understand on how that crab dance just had to be reanimated with Cookie doing the dance. Cookie has already been through another character look. I find the ending rather funny in a way since he was "only foolin'" and I guess it's meant to spoof the other "villain chasing girlfriend" (Whoops, I've jinxed it). I feel that the redesign of Cookie looks much better and looks more flapper-like when the 2nd one just looked too child-looking. Hopefully, things will turn out for the better. They say this cartoon came out in December 1934, but I still go with September as I find Dave Mackey's title card site very reliable, and I borrow through it chronologically.
