DERBY DAY (1923) After seeing a legitimate horse race the gang decide to open a track of their own. The "thor'breds" in their stable consist of a cow, a mule, a tricycle, a couple of dogs and a goat!
BIG BUSINESS (1924) The gang decide to enter the seething world of of modern business by opening their own barber shop where hedge clippers are the tool of choice. Their coiffure repertoire includes the "Mohawk", the "shaved and shiny" and the "random" cut. A "two dollar job" soon arrives in the person of Mickie, whose long, curly locks prove impossible to resist!
MONKEY BUSINESS (1926) A monkey is fed up performing tricks for his trainer and decides to escape and see the world. He soon befriends Farina and the gang who wish to use him as the main attraction in their own circus. Before they can put on a single performance, however, their primate pal discovers some "home brew" and tears up the town!
WAR FEATHERS (1926) After a wild train trip the gang arrive in the rootin' tootin' western town of Red Dog. To avoid a gun battle, they hide in a covered wagon which, it turns out, belongs to a desperate group of outlaws en route to the "Whistling Clam Rancho", their hideout. It's soon unclear who's more dangerous - the outlaws or the gang!
LOVE MY DOG (1927) The fact that Farina's pooch is a baby-saving hero doesn't cut the mustard with the heartless dog catchers. They're rounding up every un-vaccinated dog in town due to a hydrophobia epidemic. Will Farina's beloved pet be gassed? In this film the audience helps decide his fate!
