  • Description

    Joe Noble animation featuring the characters Sammy and Sausage. Number 18 in the series. C/U of Joe Noble smoking a cigarette and sitting at his drawing board. He sketches out a shape which turns into Sausage (a dog). Sammy does some manic skipping with a rope - eventually falling over and seeing stars. Sausage goes up to Sammy and after being asked if he fancies playing a game, looks all coy and says: "Sorry Sammy But I'se goin' to meet my Sweetie!" Sammy walks up to a kennel and knocks on the outside. We see a male dog wearing a top hat creep out of the back of the kennel.

    A girl dog (although she looks like a cat!) comes out - blushing. Sausage and the chick have a kiss. She says: "Oh Sausage I've been so lonely." They walk off and start kissing underneath a tree. He tickles her under the chin and she starts to look annoyed. She then gives him a left hook which sends him flying. She walks off. Sammy notices a sign pinned to the tree. It is the park regulations. One of which is: "No kissing or spooning is permitted - Penalty - 5 years hard." Sausage looks very alarmed.

    Suddenly a policeman appears. A chase ensues. Sammy looks very upset and turns around and around on the drawing board. He says: "Quick Guv'nor open the ink pot!" Joe's hand comes in and opens the lid of the ink pot, Sammy and Sausage dive in. Some ink flies out to spell "The End."

    Was originally an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 410.

    Note: rereading this summary it seems strange that Sausage is going out with a cat - perhaps this is my error and it was in fact a lady dog instead!
