  • Short Summary

    Animation featuring Sammy and Sausage - they fly "down under" to Australia.

  • Description

    Joe Noble animation. Possibly number 10 in the series.

    Sammy and Sausage stand in the corner of the frame. Cut to Joe Noble with Sammy and Sausage animated on a piece of canvas on the easel. Sammy sits on Sausage's back (Sausage is a dog). He asks Joe "What are you reading Guv'nor?" Sausage puts his glasses on so that he can read the paper. C/U of the paper which has the headline: "Flight to Australia." Joe speaks to Sammy: "Wonderful Fellows, those fliers." Sammy says: "Pooh!" and holds his nose. "Why, I flew it long ago" he says. "Really? Tell me all about it." says Joe, and puts a cigar in his mouth.

    Sammy and Sausage fly along in a kind of airship with a basket suspended underneath. Sammy looks through a telescope. He sees two men swimming in the Channel and a fisherman dangling a bottle off the end of a fishing line over the side of his boat. Sammy and Sausage carry on flying along, but they are followed by a large eagle. Sammy tells Joe that they found themselves in Australia. Joe asks Sammy if they got "the reward?" Sammy says: "Australia is "down under" everything is topsy turvy." We see their aircraft and above them standing on the ground and waving are three people. They are suspended upside down though - to make the point about them being "down under." Other people join them and wave. Shot of a London street with Sammy and Susie flying overhead. Sausage says, " Me, some flier." Joe licks his finger and pulls off the letter F so that it reads "Some Liar." Sammy flicks himself over and knocks himself out - stars float around above his head.
