Ko-Ko Train's Em

by Nicholas Sammond

In this 1925 Out of the Inkwell short, Ko-Ko becomes jealous of Max's attention to his young ward and her dog, and tries to create a circus by training animals, then fleas. The fleas escape the animated world, infecting the cinematically real characters--offering up another example of the Fleischers' vaudevillian play with the boundary between the real and the animate.
