Storyline

An animator leaves his work room, and a storm comes up and blows his drawing paper around and overturns the inkwell. Large blotches of ink fall on the sheets of paper, and become wild African warriors and Harlem jitterbugs as the wind howls outside. Comes the dawn, the storm ends, and the inky figures return to the inkwell. The maid comes in to clean the workroom, and finds nothing by ink smudges on scattered sheets of paper. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Out of the Inkwell meets Walter Lantz
8 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The cartoon starts with a cartoonist working on a strip. When he gets tired, he leaves a window open. The wind spills the papers on the floor, and spills the inkwell, forming a rosharch figure. Then, through the magic of animated cinema, the characters come to life moving to the title song, which is quite catchy. The fun ends when a cleaning lady walks in and cleans up the mess that cartoonist made. Unfortunately, this cartoon is racist in its drawing, but the music is great. It is available on bootleg tape compilations, and it really is one of the milder racist cartoons.
