Those of you familiar with the stable of original characters created by the Fleischer Studio will no doubt be a fan of Wiffle Piffle - the man with the boneless arms. For those ignorant of the joy of Piffle, you can see drawings of him here and watch him in the Betty Boop cartoon Hot Air Salesman.
I was surprised to find the aforementioned, ineffectual mite, was actually in a Popeye cartoon - as a street brawler in 'Brotherly Love'. His guest appearance had eluded me for countless screenings over the years. It's a short cameo so stay sharp and don't blink when the scene comes up next time you watch the cartoon.
Attention Collectors and Owners of Fleischer and Famous Studio Art
If you have a piece of Fleischer or Famous Studios production art that comes from an unknown title and needs identification - contact me. I have Identified pieces in the past for animation historian Jerry Beck, Leslie Cabarga (The Fleischer Story book), miscellaneous dealers, collectors, and readers of this blog. The only thing I ask for in return is a high quality scan of the art.
