A little elf tries to hammer in a nail to the strains of “Tales of the Vienna Woods” in Friz Freleng’s Holiday for Shoestrings. Note the smear animation.
We all know how the scene’s going to end. The bigger elves are shocked at what they’ve done. They close their eyes in anticipation of the take.
Cut to the gag.
