Yet More Examples

Continuing with the subject matter posted here and here -

Below are two clips from 'Plumbing is a 'Pipe' (1938). Following those are clips from 'My Artistical Temperature' (1937) showing the same thing.

Here the clip edited - it's a continuous scene of animation with the exception of Olive missing and a blast of water added when Popeye is pushed back by the water the second time.

Again, a fine contribution to the historiography! Thank you!

There's one in "She-Sick Sailors", too (Henning's spinach eating scene).

(Plumbing Is A Pipe)
That makes total sense now musically.
The hand pushes Popeye twice and then on the third beat He pulls out the can!
On a side note that take Olive does around 4:35 is one of my all time favourites!
I still can't get over the facile those artists animated perspective and force/torque.
Did they have previous training in architectural drawing before joining the Fleischer's studio?

Okay...
I know these are geeky questions but I'm gonna throw them out there anyway.

1). Have you ever noticed, on the Paramount Slate, the clouds are scudding by Right to Left at the beginning of the cartoon and Left to Right on the end slate?
Do you think this was deliberate (as in Eisenstein/R to L = tension L to R = resolved)?

2). Some of the dialogue isn't animated but it doesn't appear as a mistake but something done deliberately. It gives the effect that we can hear what the character is thinking.
Do you think the re-editing caused this or was this done to just keep the tempo up and prevent the film from sagging?
