  • Description

    Animation featuring Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - a cartoon dog. A U.I.C. production.

    We see the animator's hand as he draws Jerry (Sid Griffiths?). Jerry is cycling along but the artist hasn't drawn him a bike. Speech bubble comes out: "- Mr. Artist! What about the bike?" A bike is drawn in. Jerry carries on cycling. There is moving landscape behind him. Suddenly a fire engine starts bringing up the rear. Jerry cycles along looking scared. The fire engine chases Jerry. They ring the bell and wave their arms. Jerry worries about getting a puncture. He rides his bike into a small wall and goes over the top. He sees stars. He yells after the firemen: "I hope the blinkin' fire's out when you get there!" C/U of Jerry's wrecked bike. Jerry climbs through someone's window. He walks into the bedroom and goes over to the dressing table. He looks at himself in the mirror and laughs. He powders his nose and laughs. He sprays his nose with perfume and rolls his eyes. He notices an invitation on the dressing table and picks it up.

    It reads: "Town Hall Grand Fancy Dress Ball. Valuable prizes offered for the best fancy dress. Mike Mulligan's dance orchestra. Admit One." He winks at the audience. He looks into the mirror and it cracks. He falls into an open trunk labelled: "Fancy Costumes". He throws around bits of costume and comes out dressed as a fairy. He uses his magic wand to create a car. He jumps in it and drives off. We see a cartoon Jerry driving along being followed by a bus (this is a real bus). He arrives at the Town Hall. The firemen are there as the Hall is on fire. Jerry pulls up and looks at a sign: "The Ball has been postponed owing to the heat." He sticks his feet out of the car to warm them. Story ends.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
