  • Short Summary

    The artist Poy draws a cartoon - the audience is invited to guess what it depicts.

  • Description

    No title.

    By process of animation we see a cartoon being drawn. The cartoon is of a lion receiving mail in the jungle delivered by a little monkey postman. He hands the lion some envelopes, one of which reads: "Mr Leo, Forest, Africa." and the Lion says: "More Bills I suppose!" "Did you "get" it?" Six of the original Poy cartoons (framed) are to be awarded as consolation prizes. "Full details on a Poster at this Theatre."

    Note: This is one of the 10 drawings in the "Pathe Pictorial Cartoon Competition" - see other items of that name.
