    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In the United States of America we see various shots of a turkey who has adopted six cute little ducklings. When the turkey sits down the ducklings snuggle up to her back feathers - very sweet!

    Also in America we see a chimpanzee called 'Jiggs' wearing a shirt, tie, trousers, socks and shoes and smoking a cigarette. A man in a white coat holds an ashtray for Jiggs. Jiggs then has a haircut and manicure. This seems to be taking place on a boardwalk while a crowd of people watch. The man tries to give him a shave but Jiggs isn't keen and tries to bite the shaving brush.

    In Germany we see a circus horse trotting around a field in Berlin and being taught the Nazi goose-step by his rather bossy lady trainer. Seems to have been quite the fashion to teach your horse the goosestep at this time - see PSP 816.
