Willie Whopper is telling another whopper of a lie, and this one takes him down a volcano into the bowels of Hell. There he meets many historical figures and fictional characters, including Napoleon, Nero, Rasputin, Cleopatra, Simon Legree, Dr. Jekyll and others. Willie's dog has come down with him, and unintentionally gives one of his fleas to Cerberus, thus giving the poor devil dog his own torment. One denizen among the damned (a personification of Prohibition) tries to escape. "Stop him!" cries Satan. Willie, determined to help the Dark One keep the bad soul where he belongs, gives chase. Soon, he and the would-be escapee are racing through the hottest place in Hell: the boiler room. Written by J. Spurlin

Willie in Hell
28 June 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Willie Whopper and his dog are climbing up a volcano when it sucks them in and they end up in Hell. While I cannot decide which Willie Whopper cartoon out of all that I have seen is my favorite, this one is really good. I enjoy the background art of this cartoon as well as the animation. Some gags I enjoy are the famous dead people walking in line one after another. They include Emperor Nero playing his fiddle, Antony and Cleopatra, Simon Legree riding a dogsled, and Rasputin doing the Russian dance. One thing that puzzles me, however, is why Willie, being such a kindhearted person, would want to stop one guy from leaving Hell. This cartoon is a lost cartoon with a few segments left of it.
