    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unclear or unknown.

    Australian newsreel titles read: 'This Cocky's REALLY Cocky'.

    Victoria, Australia.

    M/S of animal trainer Peter Miller posing with 2 cockatoos and a dog. Various shots of performing cockatoos. One holds onto its hair with its foot. Other tricks include jumping through a hoop and hanging onto it with its beak, turning round and round and falling over, attempting to play a miniature toy piano, square dancing.

    One bird enters a miniature public bar, brings out a bottle of beer then performs like a drunk by turning over and over. A cockatoo sits on the back of a dog like a jockey while the dog jumps hurdles and stands up on its hind legs. Cockatoo on dog's back joins in skipping with trainer, Peter Miller.
