Wiffle Piffle is a character that Fleischer Studios tried to develop out of their Betty Boop series. His first appearance was in a Screen Song: I Feel Like A Feather In The Breeze, released in 1936, in which he appears as a waiter in the opening. The animation of the character was by Tom Johnson (as was his 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 a complex multiplane shot behind him. Piffle further makes a cameo in the Popeye cartoon Brotherly Love.
