Pig in a Poke

Oswald the rabbit is trying to serenade his sweetheart on a banjo, but his sheet music keeps blowing away from against a rock. He shows his silent-film anger.

He comes up with an idea. He’ll tack the paper into the rock so it won’t move.

Oh, wait. It’s not a rock at all.

There are some good little routines in this 1928 Walt Disney/Universal cartoon, Rival Romeos, or “snappy” as one trade paper called it. The goat spewing out musical notes after eating an instrument was used again in Steamboat Willie.
