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

Given Willie's glancing acquaintance with the truth, this is his tallest tale.

This cartoon exists only in fragmentary form and is on one of the Cartoons That Time Forgot DVDs. The fragments are reasonably good, though I'm not, truth be told, a fan of the Willie Whopper series. Having seen this, I would very much like to see Hell's Bells, a short Ub Iwerks directed some years earlier when he was first at Disney. Visually impressive, as always. Glad to see it in print. Worth watching. Recommended.
