More Barnacle Bill (1930) Grim Natwick, Cartooniness

Here's one of my favorite cartoon scenes ever.

While Disney was spending his artists' time trying to figure out what lightning really looked like, Grim just made it up and to me, it's a heck of a lot more fun. If I want to see realistic lightning, I can look outside the window during a storm.

But I have to watch cartoons to get this kind of thing.

This is pure creativity, a concept of the distant past.
