Well, hooooooow do you like that? I know Educational shorts, especially talkies, get a bad rap, but these Joe Cook shorts are pretty good overall.

There's no problem with Educational talkie shorts , except for some humorless dingbats who don't get them and whine. Apart from the Keaton and Langdons, a number of the Astoria-produced shorts have fun Broadway, Radio and Vaudeville performers like Cook, Willie Howard, Bert Lahr, Danny Kaye, Charles Kemper, Ernest Truex, many more.
