Bare Faced Oswald

How often does a cartoon character strip off his face? There are some cartoons where a face comes off after a head is bashed into something but in Africa Before Dark (1928), Oswald takes off his face and leaves it by a hole to capture a tiger, while his body is at a second hole.

The plan works.

It’s a great gag, but a reused one. Walt Disney (this is a Disney Oswald) tried it out in Alice Gets Stung (1925).


  1. Great 1930's gag they should of used it in cuphead

  2. Maybe the warring drug factions in Mexico were inspired by this.
