"Why don'tcha use fresh ink when you draw me? I've got no more pep than a snail under ether."

Cute little early animated short and the first instance I can find of claymation on film (very little of it). An animator assists a sculptor with a client who doesn't want his enormous nose accurately represented. While he's away from his drawing board, a mischievous cartoon clown escapes his inky world and skates around the studio making trouble. Features some impressive integration of animation and reality along with a few funny moments which got some chuckles out of me.

Watch it here (7 min).
