About this work

Also known as

Watch him, Pincer


A fruit farmer accompanied by his bulldog finds a boy trespassing on a branch of one of his apple trees. He tells the dog Pincher to watch the boy. He goes away and comes back with a whip and a rope. With the rope he pulls the branch down. The boy falls down on top of the farmer, and the farmer falls down on top of the bulldog. In the final slide, the farmer and the bulldog recover from their accident, the farmer's wife rushes to help, and the boy is seen sitting on the wall enjoying his stolen fruit
