  • Description

    Animation featuring Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - a cartoon dog. A cartoon curtain rises. A U.I.C. production. Intertitle reads: "Dead Men tell no tales - but these speak for themselves!" Illustration shows some beer bottles on the ground. We see Jerry standing beside the bottles pouring himself a beer. He is standing beside the clubhouse of a golf course drinking the beer of another golfer who is having a snooze. This film seems to follow on from the other Jerry film called: "Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - Golf." Jerry pours the beer, blows the froth off the top and then drinks the whole glass. He throws the glass on top of the bottle, laughing. He picks up his golf club, hiccuping. He hits a ball, it bounces off one of the hole markers and hits Jerry in the face. He sees stars. He plucks one of the stars out of the air and sets it down in the ground. He hits it and it rolls into the hole. He laughs. He takes another ball from his pocket and hits it. It bounces a long way then drops into the mouth of a man who is having a sleep on the golf course. As he snores the ball lifts up and down. Jerry sees the ball which he thinks is balanced on the top of a hill. He then sees it rising and falling as the man snores. He takes out a gun and shoots it. The man appears and looks angry, Jerry flies off to get out of the way.

    Under a tree Jerry is about to hit another ball. He shouts "FORE!" and this frightens a bird in a tree who lays eggs on Jerry's head. The bird laughs. Jerry gets annoyed and starts chasing the bird. The bird picks up a golf ball in its mouth. He flies up into the tree and drops the ball in his nest. Jerry looks annoyed. Jerry decides to climb inside the tree and get his revenge on the bird. He hits it with the golf club. Jerry laughs. The bird lands on the ground and sees stars. Jerry laughs so much that he falls off the tree. Another bird laughs at them both lying at the bottom of the tree seeing stars. The End.
