I take it that people didn't know as much about asbestos back then

One of Warner Bros.' early cartoon shorts depicts a bunch of farm animals putting on performances. "Shake Your Powder Puff" is nothing special. The Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were in their infancy at this point, so they hadn't quite figured out their path. Friz Freleng often depicted people trying to break into show biz. In fact, the very next year he released "I Haven't Got a Hat", which debuted a certain stuttering pig. Most people don't realize that the Warner Bros. cartoons didn't feature the studio's famous characters for the first couple of years. Once Porky debuted, it was a quick step to Daffy's lunacy, Bugs's irreverence, and Elmer's incompetence, plus the rest of the characters. In the meantime, this cartoon is mainly a look at the animation department's early days.
