| Not Me -- I've Seen Other Snooky Movies
I first must note special interest: I do not like 'comedies' in which animals are mistreated for the audience's amusement: Jules White & Zion Meyers' DOGVILLE series for MGM fills me with horror. But chimpanzees are human enough and social enough that using them as performers does not disturb me and I have some fond members of the Marquis Chimps on television when I was a child.

That being the case, we need to consider how well this short subject -- which has been lovingly and partially reconstructed by the fine folks at Looser Than Loose -- stacks up, and it stacks up poorly. Snooky plays a bindlestiff who rescues a child. But, aside from some chimpanzee-acting-human bits, like playing with a typewriter, this short lacks much in the way of interesting gags. I can't recommend any of the Snooky shorts, but this is one that does not add significantly to the oeuvre.
