  • Short Summary

    Joe's heart is broken and his cartoon friends decide to fix it for him.

  • Description

    Joe Noble animation featuring Sammy and Sausage - a cartoon dog. A mixture of live action and animation. Sammy and Sausage are fooling around - kicking each other and doing somersaults. C/U of Joe Noble sitting at his drawing board smoking a cigarette. Sammy says "Wonder what's up with the boss to-day?" Sausage is dressed up as Sherlock Holmes with a deer stalker and magnifying glass. He walks backwards and forwards. "Hey! Sherlock, there's a clue on the floor, an old letter." The letter (amongst lots of cigarette butts) reads as follows: "Joseph, I love another and I am sending back the presents you promised me, Yours etc. Lulu." Sausage says "No time to lose, my dear Jotson. We must examine his heart for cracks at once!" Sammy walks over to Joe and says "Put a jerk in it Jotson" He then says "Open your mouth and shut your eyes." Joe opens his mouth wide. C/U of Sammy looking inside Joe's mouth. He jumps inside "GOAL" Joe pulls a face.

    The next intertitle is unreadable due to decomposition damage. A cartoon image is superimposed over Joe's chest - his heart has a plaster on it. A big pipe is seen too - a speech bubble comes out of it "Stand Clear of the Gates Please" A door opens and Sausage comes out. He grabs the heart which snaps off. He smells it then falls over. "He wants new heart putting into him, said Sausage." He looks puzzled at the fact that Joe has no heart and says "Heart one, no veg!" Another heart flies out of the door and starts beating. Sammy and Sausage shake hands up on the easel. Joe shouts at them and they begin to hear "The Dead March" - music appears with a bouncing ball. "Some heart you gave me - ! Where did you find it?" "In that!" shout Sammy and Sausage. Joe picks up a small basket which is labelled "Onions". He tells his friends: "It was an onion, and every time my heart is touched my eyes water!" A glamourous girl appears. She lifts up her skirt a little and takes a powder puff from a garter. She powders her nose looking in a mirror. Joe looks very keen. He then starts crying. He dabs his eyes with a handkerchief. As he cries, tears fly out of his eyes and hit Sammy and Sausage on the head! Sausage holds up an umbrella. Soon there are enough tears for the two friends to turn the umbrella upside down and sail along a river of tears.
