Clean Getaway

“What are you doin’ with the soap?” ringmaster Huckleberry Hound asks Pixie and Dixie, in one of those little cartoons between the cartoons.

“It’s for Jinks. He’s chasing us,” says Dixie. We hear Jinks off camera. The meeces, with their elfin eyes, take off with a high step.

Jinks runs into the scene . . .

. . . Slides into the washing machine . . .

. . . And into the wash cycle. Check out some of the drawings of Jinks. Pixie and Dixie just move their mouths and an arm comes up; otherwise, they’re rigid.

The frames come from a 16mm black and white reel courtesy of Steven Hanson’s YouTube channel.
