  • Description

    Animation. The ace cartoon character Jerry the Troublesome Tyke has another adventure. An U.I.C. production.

    "When we last saw Jerry, it was raining coconuts. The storm has passed..." (This is a reference to the previous week's episode which was almost certainly "Jerry's Treasure Island Travel.") Jerry lies under some palm trees on an island. He sits up and looks at the camera - dazed. Scratches his head and looks around. He gets up and is scalped by a fast flying spear. His ears have disappeared. He shakes his head and looks puzzled. He has an idea - he picks up two spiky plants and sticks them on his head instead of ears. He wiggles them then admires himself in a mirror. He scowls, shakes his head and looks at the camera. He pulls them off and sticks on two different plants - less spiky. These flop over his face and he has to snip the tops off to make them shorter. More spears come Jerry's way and he yells: "OO-ER"!

    He looks alarmed and we see why - there is a cannibal carrying a shield, wearing a grass skirt and top hat and aiming a spear Jerry's way. He throws it and Jerry runs off. A chase ensues. Jerry shins up a tree. The cannibal mouths something and makes funny faces at the base of the tree. Jerry gets to the top and drops a coconut on the cannibal's head. He points and laughs at the cannibal then puts his foot on the man's belly, posing like Napoleon with one arm behind his back and the other on his chest. A Napoleonic hat appears on his head. Jerry puts a flower in the cannibal's hand, points to heaven shaking his head then points to hell and nods! Jerry finds a canoe and gets in it. Superimposed on real footage Jerry rows along a river. "Jerry has found his Treasure Island - but what about the Treasure? We'll see - next week!"

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
