Tonight's short feature in The Dungeon is a 1951 cartoon titled "Early To Bet!"
The main character is a little guy called the Gambling Bug!"
The Gambling Bug has a pretty cool pad. I especially like the betting window!
There are a couple of examples of how people will bet on anything!
This poor sap hit a jackpot and still got ripped off!
The Gambling Bug is a rotten little louse that bites this cat that is otherwise minding it's own business!
The cat immediately gets the gambling fever and dashes off to play cards with the bulldog!
Of course he loses on the first hand!
And this is how he feels after that loss!
For losing, he has to spin the penalty wheel, which has numbered penalties with matching numbers on filing cards in a filing cabinet!
All the penalties have different names, and this one is call the Gesundheit, and as you can see, involves bubble gum and sneeze powder!
The ensuing results are fairly predictable!
The bug bites the cat a couple of more times, and more penalties like the William Tell happen!
In the end, the cat and the bug draw cards, and let's just say the bug loses badly!
You can bet on the fact that I'll be back with one more post on Saturday, and after that, it's Sayonara 2017! I don't know about you, but it was a pretty wild year for me!
