Willie Wopper
12 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the Willie Whopper cartoons, the boy who always tells stories about his adventures which we don't know for sure if he telling the truth or not.

In this short Willie looks little different, he is not the fat boy we know, for some reason he looked skinny here, maybe because it was necessarily for winning the race. Anyhow, this short was made before 1935 when sexual jokes were allowed for cartoons. And I saw in one of the shots an angel character gives a flyer the finger for speeding. in general it is a good cartoon
