An Elephant Gun

In Felix Doubles For Darwin (1924), our hero climbs into a hollow log. It turns out to be the trunk of an elephant.

The elephant tries to get him out of his trunk in a cycle of three drawings.

He succeeds but then pulls back the cat, twirls him around then tosses him out of the scene.

This cartoon was on home video—in 1930. You could have bought the reel from Home Film Libraries of New York for $22.50, a pretty steep price in the Depression, I’d say.
