  4. The Dogville Shorts

From 1929 to 1931, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer produced a series of short comedy films called All Barkie Dogville Comedies, sometimes known as the "barkies" (in a parody of "talkies").

The actors in these films were trained dogs, dressed up to parody the performers in contemporary films. The dogs' dialogue in these early sound films was dubbed by actors and voice artists including Pete Smith.
