SUMMARY Dud wants to buy his girlfriend Maime an ice cream cone so he breaks open his mother's bank, and splits their last dime in half in the process. His mother punishes him so he runs away. Dud is scared by imaginary ghosts in the dark, so he runs back home where he gets a spanking from his mother.
These two variants of Wallace Carlsons "Dreamy Dud," a boy with an overactive fantasy life and a down-to-earth dog, reveal how animation history does not always parallel artistic progress. The 1915 film from the Essanay Studio has a simpler line-drawing method but a sharper wit, and is indebted in style and content to Winsor McCays dreamy hero, "Little Nemo." The later version, from Carlsons 1919-20 Us Fellers series, is more complicated but less comic, relying on the elaborate backgrounds available through the Bray Studios patents.
