Time For Lunch

Flying words are always lots of fun in silent cartoons. Here’s one from “Sky Scappers,” a 1928 Oswald cartoon.

It’s noon on the job site. The foreman pokes a mechanical worker into blowing his whistle to get everyone to take a break to eat. Oswald's ear changes shape to hear the word floating overhead. Here are some of the drawings; a shame the top of the print is cropped on this.

Incidentally, the dogs and cats on the jobsite are on a 30-drawing cycle.

The only person to get a credit is non-drawing Walt Disney.
