Rotor Head

In the 1931 Van Beuren cartoon Rabid Hunters, a horse realises he can’t jump across the lake, so his head turns into a propeller and he flies across.

Evidently, the gag was so popular, it was done again later in cartoon with a rabbit. And underwater.

John Foster and George Stallings get the only credit.


  1. Am I the only person who would rather see a Van Beuren Tom & Jerry revival instead of more Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny?

    1. It'd end up being CGI. And they don't have the old writers to come up with a disjointed story.
