The Old Hokum Bucket

Directed by Mannie Davis and John Foster
1931    7m
A Jewish snake oil salesman sells some 'Peppo', a magic elixir, to a poor farmer with a farm full of lazy animals. To prove the potency of his pills, he pulls a dead cat out of his bag and drops the magic formula into its dead carcass. Whatever reanimates this poor soul at least has the appearance of life, and this is good enough for our hero. This particular drug must make the farmer delusional since he sees all his animals-everything he owns- as a testing ground for this zombie resurrection formula. After watching a dancing egg split open and 'hatch' the salesman (proudly waving a US flag), he end ups dancing with a cow and gets betrayed by a bull and a batch of his own animals and frogs after falling into the deepest well in any cartoon.
