  • Short Summary

    A penguin, a dog and a rabbit are drawn by the cartoon artist Mr A.B. Payne.

  • Description

    M/S of a dog, a rabbit and a penguin. "Not forgetting Mr A.B.Payne, the Artist, and Uncle Dick (who was having a little difficulty with Squeak)." M/S of a house interior (probably a set). The artist attempts to draw the penguin but it is waddling around all over the place. There is a model house in the room. "Uncle Dick" tries to get the penguin to stand still. M/S of the penguin who shakes his head. The penguin is given a fish. "Mustn't forget Wilfred said Mr Payne." A cartoon is taking shape on the easel. C/U of the rabbit who is sitting on the roof of the model house. Mr Payne continues with his drawing.

    "And don't let him miss me, Uncle", said 'Pip'" Pip stands on top of the house as Uncle Dick hangs on to him. Uncle Dick shakes his paw. M/S of Mr Payne drawing Pip. Uncle Dick strokes Pip who doesn't look too happy balanced on the model house. "And Uncle who's a peaceful soul, promised them they'd all be in the picture - and they are." L/S of the domestic scene. Pip is inside the model house, the penguin on the ground in front of it and the rabbit - I'm not sure. C/U of the house. There is a label on one of the doors which reads "Squeak". The rabbit hops along.

    Was an Eve's Film Review item.

    Note: presumably Pip, Squeak and Wilfred are cartoon characters who appeared in the Daily Mirror?
