I'll Have a Foot

A pie-eyed, odd looking version of wrestler Willie Whopper turns a malformed foot of his opponent into a hamburger in Rasslin’ Round (1934).

Is this how Burger King got the “Whopper”? (That’s about as creative as anything in this weak cartoon).

Bob Stokes and Norm Blackburn get screen credit for animation, with Carl Stalling providing the music.

  1. Reminds me of scenes where a character who strongly enough resembles a food animal (cattle, chicken, etc.) is threatened with being eaten (if only fuguratively speaking); like "Mama" Harper threatening to turn a wise-cracking parrot into "Parrot McNuggets" and Fred Flintstone making a threating comment to an incooperative dodo bird that bit his finger wondering how he'd taste barbecued.
