Zooming Cat Head

Van Beuren loved those zooming heads to end cartoons. Here’s the ending of Rough on Rats (1933), where the little kittens sway and meow to the chirpy song in the background.

The black kitten looks angry but changes its expression as the head zooms forward to greet the audience.

Historian/animator Mark Kausler believes the first time this was done was in The Fly’s Bride, a 1929 Fables cartoon by Van Beuren.
