Bonzo the Traveller and Polar Bonzo

Some stills from a couple of 1925 Bonzo shorts. In the first Bonzo stows away on a plane to France, causes travel in the City of Lights and finally swims the channel to Boobville-on-the-Rocks

Both shorts can be bought on DVD from Cartoons on Film.


  In this short, Polar Bonzo, Bonzo goes to see a film about polar exploration, only to fall asleep and dream he's at the Arctic.


  1. Haven't seen this one before, but i do love Bonzo. Is that Chaplin in the last image? I think you have made a typo on the date though, the series was released 1924-25.

  2. Oops, yes, my mistake. Fixed it now.

    And yes, that's definitely Charlie Chaplin - well, a carboard cutout, anyway.

  3. Nice to give a shout out to Tom States' business!
