Wiffle Piffle was a character that the Fleischer Studios tried to develop out of the Betty Boop series. His first appearance was in a Screen Song: I Feel Like A Feather In The Breeze which released in 1936 in which he appears as a waiter in the opening. The animation of the character was by Tom Johnson (as was this model sheet.) Two follow-up films were made with this side character in Betty Boop shorts. The first, released in February 1937, was Whoops! I’m a Cowboy, and the second, in March 1937, The Hot Air Salesman. The opening scene features an expensive multiplane shot behind him.
