The Chaplin Bears

George and Junior dress up as fire hydrants to attract a little dog they’re trying to catch in Hound Hunters (1947). If you’ve seen enough cartoons, you know what’s going to happen next.


The dogs realise where the noise is coming from. Hydrants!

Here is George and Junior’s reaction. This is one time in the cartoon where the characters don’t have their tongues sticking straight out in shock.

Both George and Junior do that one-foot slide when running around a corner that Charlie Chaplin did in his films.

Heck Allen helped Avery with the gags, Johnny Johnsen is the background artist and the animation is credited to Ed Love, Walt Clinton, Ray Abrams and Preston Blair. It sounds like George is played by Frank Graham sped up.
