Hilarious Parodies Of 1920s Films Featuring Dogs Instead Of People

In the late 1920s, somebody at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer had a really strange idea: making short comedy films poking fun of recent films by replacing all the human characters with trained dogs in clothes. Here are all nine episodes made between 1929 and 1931 known as the "barkies."


All of the shorts were directed by Zion Myers and Jules White. White also directed many Three Stooges shorts.

Hot Dog

College Hounds

So Quiet on the Canine Front

Who Killed Rover? (The Dogville Murder Case)
