The Robot's After Flip!

Flip’s fiendish robot is coming for him in “Techno-Cracked” (1933). Nice layout.

Flip decides to kill him with dynamite…

…which the robot eats. A kaleidoscope effect shows the dynamitic indigestion.

Naturally, the robot quickly adjourns to a nearby outhouse but explodes as he, for reasons I can’t fathom, does a belly-flop in front of the door.

The Iwerks studio was downplaying the fact Flip was supposed to be a frog. He’s simply billed as “Flip” in the opening title animation by now.
