The Balloonatic (film #6 on Side A of Disc 2 of Comedy Classics DVD Megapack (Treeline Films, 2004)). [Category: Hollywood]

After striking out in finding a date at an amusement park, Buster Keaton accidentally ends up on a hot air balloon, which takes him to a remote area where he has various mishaps involving a shallow river, a three-part snap-together canoe, and a pretty female fisherman. This is quite amusing, as Buster has a talent for making any bad situation worse. A fun silent comedy short.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
