    Full titles read: "A little fancy, fun & frolic from The Wiere Brothers, the famous Continental Speciality Artists -".

    London (probably Pathe Studios).

    Various shots of the Wiere Brothers in dark trousers and white shirts as they do a funny dance routine, all the while standing very close together, and jerking their heads this way and that - it looks like good fun!

    One of the brothers reappears in a dark suit and introduces his horse, 'Ticky' (?). The other two brothers prance on in a pantomime horse costume; funny business follows as the horse bows towards us, then the back half kicks the front half in the pants and they have a bit of a disagreement. More silly business; the horse jumps a stick held by the 'human' brother, then over the brother as he lies on the ground. The horse does a silly dance then takes a bow.

    This is one of my favourites!
