Swinging the Sultan

In the climax battle between good and evil in Insultin' the Sultan, our hero Willie Whopper swings the nasty sultan by the beard. The stretch snaps the beard off (with stars representing pain).

The sultan spins and morphs into a barber pole, losing his clothes along the way before crashing into a pillar in his palace.

The sultan morphs again. Look! He’s one of those favourites of early ‘30s animated cartoons, Mahatma Gandhi.

A mounted goat head on the wall turns and bleats at him. Now that’s comedy!

Bernie Wolf and Grim Natwick are the credited animators. Art Turkisher supplies the score.
