Flip’s Circus (1921)

Flip, the Irish-American stereotype from “Little Nemo,” attempts to tame a creature of the bizarre and somehow macabre ilk that McCay loved to illustrate.

I think it’s the dead eyes. But the film is an amusing enough short given much more weight by the horse/dog/hippo/alien creature and its surreal movement.
