Waves crash over Tom and Jerry on their wrecked ship in “Polar Pals” (1932). All kinds of sea creatures that began lodges in their clothes and bodies escape. Whoever animated the scene at Van Beuren didn’t use cycles and each drawing takes up a single frame.
There’s a frog in Tom’s ears.
And an eel comes out of his pants. Tom bats it away.
A turtle and more fish. Jerry has fish in his ear.
And a fish hidden in Jerry’s hat flies away.
John Foster and George Rufle get the only credits.
