Dog Eat Dog

Hot dogs aren’t usually emotional, but they are in the hands of Walt Disney and his gagmen.

In the silent short All Wet, Oswald the rabbit sells a hot dog to a dog. But the hot dog is alive. It’s silent, but the animators can easily get across all the necessary emotions without a lot of elaborate drawing.

The internet says the animators of this cartoon were Ub Iwerks, Ham Hamilton, Friz Freleng, Ben Clopton, Hugh Harman, Paul J. Smith and Norm Blackburn.


  1. Walt did it again in The Karnival Kid (a hot dog acting like a rowdy child that needs a spanking).

    1. Living hot dogs seem to have been popular at several studios in the late 20s/early 30s.
