What it is: Comic trick short
A couple goes outside to spoon in the moonlight, but find that they’re being watched…
What we have here is your basic one-gag comic short. Outside of the two lovers, there’s a third character, and he’s listed in the title, and the fact that he appears as a character at all is where the fantastic content lies. It’s mildly amusing, but hardly essential; it’s the type of silent short not really worth hunting up specifically, but if you should stumble upon it, it’s worth a peek.
