  • Short Summary

    Animation starring Bobby Bumps and his dog Fido - they try and get into the cinema.

  • Description

    Animation featuring Bobby Bumps. A "Bray" Studios Production.

    Bobby tries to sneak his dog into the theatre. He gets past the woman at the kiosk but the commissionaire spots the dog in a mirror. The pooch licks tears from his master's eyes as they sit on the pavement outside. An aristocratic lady arrives at the theatre in a chauffeur driven car and the dog gets underneath the train of her dress and into the auditorium. Bobby follows after him. They watch a film where a hypnotist commands his victim to "Bark like a dog". Bobby tries to hypnotise his pet and tells him to "Bark like a dog". He does so and they are thrown out of the theatre. They are kicked so hard that they fly through the window of a tram. Bobby then hypnotises the conductor into believing that they had paid their fare and indeed that the conductor owes them change. The conductor gives them some money. Bobby has a good laugh about their scams.

    I think that Bobby's dog is called "Fido".
