The difference between Fleischer and Disney cartoons? When Fleischer animals form into weird shapes, it’s usually the product of a nightmare. When Disney animals do it, it’s comic, not scary.

Here are some frames from “The Plowboy,” a dull 1929 Mickey Mouse offering. A goat, chicken and pig are running away from a berserk plough horse. They’re not paying attention to where they’re going and race right into a tree—and each other.

Ub Iwerks is the credited animator but Devon Baxter points out Hans Perk’s site shows that Jack King drew this scene.
