I should point out that the folks at Keystone must have been 100% insane when they made this short. This isn't a bad thing--it's just that the comedy is so bizarre, it's more like a weird Looney Tunes cartoon than what you'd expect from a slapstick comedy. It's filled with one bizarrely innovative stunt or prop after another--such as the weird hat, the strange limo, the gun gag, the flood and many more. They come one after another and you can barely catch your breath between them! You just have to see this one to see what I mean. Just remember--it's pretty weird (and pretty funny).
