He was indeed. I enjoyed the animations of the people, too. He had a most distinctive style.

Here's an odd one, from 1919 Charley on the Farm.

That is an interesting one. It's odd how those very early animations were very basic in style, just a few lines to indicate objects and backgrounds—hardly any detail at all. The cow tail cranking gag also occurs in Fatty and Mabel Adrift—Mabel does it while Fatty is milking the cow. Maybe that was a running gag back then.

It must be! It's in the Oswald one, too. Odd!! Lol

That was a good one, too. And a nice organ score!

I think that might have been Ben Model. One of the two was scored by him.
