Saxophone Cat

In 1929 and 1930, you could turn anything into a musical instrument in a cartoon. Oswald does that in the 1930 short “My Pal Paul.” Look at him abuse this poor kitty cat. Actually, the cat unwillingly becomes three instruments.

Bill Nolan was the head animator on this, with Ray Abrams, Manuel Moreno and Clyde Geronimi getting the other animation credits. This comes from a print owned by Steve Stanchfield of Thunderbean Animation.
