Butcher boy: Contains Arbuckle's famous "knife juggling" bit, Keaton's first film appearance in his classic "can of molasses" routine, and Arbuckle romping around in drag at an all girl private school.
Out West: Arbuckle's first attempt at movie parody, poking fun at the already cliched cowboy western. The film also contains some heavy racism.
Moonshine: A parody of Arbuckle's own freewheeling comedy style, filled with inside jokes. After defeating the hillbilly mountaineers, Arbuckle and Keaton conclude the film with a stinging parody of rival Charlie Chaplin's "losing the girl" pathos-type endings.
Hayseed: Notable for being the only Arbuckle Comique film in which Buster Keaton -- later known as "The Great Stone Face" -- does not either laugh or smile on screen. Also features the trick dance comedian John Coogan, child star Jackie Coogan's father.
