Eating Words

A self-explanatory gag from Alice Gets Stage Struck (1925). Was this the first use of this gag?

Tom Stathes writes to say the earliest version he's seen of the gag is in Bobby Bumps Puts a Beanery on the Bum (1918).

There are no animation credits.

  1. King Feature's 1963 Snuffy Smith cartoons, produced by Paramount Cartoons (the only KF Syndicate cartoons produced almost entirely by just one studio, with the pilot one co-produced by Jack Kinney), had an army cartoon with a seargent making SNufyf eat his words (Howie Morris as the seargant, Paul Frees as Snuffy.Krazy Kat and Beetle Bailey were the two others, in this King Features Syndicate followup to Popeye from 1960-61).:)SC
