Oswald is leading a wagons train across the plains when it is attacked by a war party of Indians in this excellent Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon.
There is a large assortment of well-executed gags in this one, including a couple of extreme rubber-tube animation gags that are well thought out -- a horse swallows cannon balls and a goat rams him in the rear to shoot them at the Indians; however, the horse complains about being butted and Oswald ties a pillow to the goat's horns to soften the blows. In addition, there's some interesting playing with angles. The Indians riding around are shot as if from a camera planted in the ground only a few feet away. This sort of extreme POV was usually associated with Frank Tashlin. Tash, however, was working as an animator for van Beuren in New York. Apparently this was in the air at the time.
