A dancer on a Cuban tourism poster does a dance. Pancho's Tamales sing in Spanish; the Old Maid cleanser girls dance. Some Russian Rye bread dances to a Russian arrangement. The penguins for Old Colds cigarettes dance and skate, too. Two union suits do a dance, with their drop panel beating time on washtubs, as a set of lingerie dances and a Jell-O mold shakes. The My Ami chick goes after the worm in an apple, but catches the hose of an air pump instead and gets inflated. A cat comes after the chick. The bellhop for Philmore cigarettes calls out the support: A Police Chief gasoline car, the RCA dog (fake brand not visible), and finally the arm and hammer from a baking soda poster which clubs the cat on the head.
