Not This Time, Flip

Flip the Frog gets a false face so his girl will go for him in Funny Face (1932), but a bully cracks it off with continual punches.

Flip checks the mirror.

Flip clearly says the word “Damn!” but no vocal is heard on the soundtrack.

The word “damn” can be heard in at least two other Flips, The Cuckoo Murder Case (1930) and Bulloney (1933). As the latter was released after this one, it’s silly to believe it was somehow banned in this cartoon.

  1. But what about the group of girls chasing the newly-handsomized Flip who shouts the "F-Bomb" when he gives them the slip outside the abandoned house?
