Not much is known about November Jones, the poor Hungarian surplus lard salesman who invented the "Dinky Dog" character in 1914. Up until a few months ago, the only remaining documentation of the short-lived animated character was this photostatic copy of a now missing microfiche news article.

That is until a recent discovery of 3 reels of original "Dinky Dog" cartoons found in a Philadelphia attic. Of the three reels, only the first cartoon was ever released in the US (Dinky Dog in Rolling In The Money 1919).

Deemed " ribald, inflammatory & extremely unfunny" at the time, the film was consistantly met with an uproar wherever it was shown; in some instances, the audiences stormed the projection booth to stop the film.

Destitute and broke, Jones disappeared and never made another cartoon. We have salvaged what we could of this early work, and will attempt to permantly archive the piece here.

The QUICKTIME PLUG-IN is recommended, but not necessary.
