When Max comes in to draw the latest Koko cartoon, the janitor and another cartoonist are playing around with a ouija board. Max goes to check out their activity while Koko deals with ghosts in the cartoon in this early Out of the Inkwell cartoon.
Fleischer is still playing around with the sheer audacity of working with the series' combination of cartoon and live action, so the gags are neither as funny nor well executed as they would become later. Koko is clearly a frenetically rotoscoped Dave Fleischer. Nonethless, although this cartoon is not as brilliant as later efforts in the series, it is engagingly performed and beautifully executed.
