Proud As a Duck

Fleischer cartoons always found time to stop the plot for a gag, sometimes quick, sometimes extended.

Here’s a routine from “I Yam What I Am” (1933) where Indians are firing arrows at ducks in a pond. Some of the arrows land on a duck’s butt. He’s outraged at first, but ends up as proud as a peacock (as “Turkey in the Straw” plays in the background).

Seymour Kneitel and William Henning receive the animation credits.
