Rubbery Wally

For a while in the early 1950s, some of the animation in the Walter Lantz looked like it came from Terrytoons. Thick ink lines, cross-eyes, rubberised body parts. Here are a couple of examples from What’s Sweepin’, directed by Don Patterson.

And another scene.

Some of the poses, especially during about the first 90 seconds of the short, are very good. Ray Abrams, La Verne Harding and Paul Smith get animation credits and, perhaps, Patterson did some animation as well.
