Larry Darmour Productions
Starring: Mickey Rooney
Directed by: Albert Herman
Synopsis: In the first of the silent Mickey McGuire comedies starring Mickey Rooney, Mickey decides to set up his own circus to entertain the neighborhood kids.
Kitty Cameo: Apparently only a portion of this silent short film still exists. As the scene opens, Mickey is sitting back and relaxing while a boy fans him. The boy gets the idea to tie the fan to a dog’s tail instead. A black cat is then seen hissing.
The cat then slips through (or is rather pulled through) a hole beneath a fence as the dog takes chase.
Final Mewsings: Cats chased by dogs; one of Hollywood’s oldest film clichés.
