The Lindy Hop

Lindbergh would not make his celebrated flight across the Atlantic for another couple of years when this cartoon was released, but everyone was going crazy for the idea of a transatlantic flight -- several had already been made, but not according to the strictures laid down by the prize rules. As a result this was a natural subject for gags and cartoons.

For half the movie, Terry and his staff pushed the limits of what might fly further and further, starting with Al Falfa in a patched dirigible, leading to images of anything that was vaguely balloon-like being able to lift things into the air, including over-inflated auto tires and sausages. That progression makes up about two-thirds of the cartoon until the staff seems to have run out of ideas. The end result is pretty much of a bore, but it never collapses like an over-inflated balloon and you can keep watching it to the end.
