• Short Summary

    A baby sea lion, a firefighting dog and silly games at an Austrian peasant festival.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    At the Bronx Zoo in New York, United States of America, we see people throwing food into the sea lion pool for the animals to catch. Then several shots of a new baby sea lion with his mother - very small and cute. The mother and child seem to kiss, then both have a scratch with their flippers.

    Somewhere in England we see a dog called Jock sitting at his master's feet in a garden. The man sits in a deckchair, lights a cigarette and tosses the match on the ground. It lands on a piece of newspaper that starts to burn. Jock pounces on the fire to put it out then sits up and begs. He puts out a cigarette butt in the same way, then tackles a small bonfire. Jock then eats some food from the same plate as a cat.

    In Austria we see peasants in a boat on a lake, being rowed to a local festival. Huge crowds are gathered at the festival site and we see a brass band playing, a man using a crossbow to hit a bulls eye at a side-show and men in shorts pushing and pulling a piece of wood back and forth between their legs! The same men play another game where one jerks his head between the other's legs, while the other man tries to smack his face. Another silly game involves two men clinging to each other and rolling repeatedly over a line of other men who are bending over. Eventually everyone falls over.
