How To End a Cartoon

Betty Boops’ Museum collapses and superimposed skeletons run for cover.

They beat it into a grave, which covers itself to end the cartoon. The gravestone tells us it’s over.

This fun 1932 short (and the Fleischer cartoons looked so much better than the other New York cartoons of the day) was handled by William Henning’s unit with Reuben Timmins getting an animation credit under his real name.
