Playmates is a 1922 silent comic film clip of the (then) young comedian Will Hay dressed as a school boy, and playing with a girl and some mechanical children's toys, from his theatrical revue 'Listening In'.
Introducing some clever mechanical toys, M'lita Dolores dressed as a young girl, stands on steps in front of a door - enter Will Hay dressed as a schoolboy. They show each other a number of toy animals that walk and jump. They quarrel and he boylike wants the best, takes away a toy which she snatches back. They squabble but make up, and leave with an arm around each other.
