Confidence

Oswald’s happy farm is visited by the depression, represented by an anthropomorphic skeletal ghoul, which causes the banks to close and stocks to crash as it encircles the world. Oswald finds that his rooster won’t crow and his chickens cannot stand let alone lay eggs, and so sets to find a doctor. Oswald is told by Dr. Pill to visit Washington to talk to President Roosevelt, who should be able to provide a cure.

animated cartoon Confidence © Walter Lantz ProductionsThis short features caricatures of four political figures in American history: a realistic portrait of Abraham Lincoln can be seen hanging behind Roosevelt desk (who has a more cartoony portrait in the background soon later), Oswald also trips over the - then - Vice President John Nance Garner, spilling his papers in the process. Lastly, Oswald uses the wig off of a statue of Thomas Jefferson as an airplane, much to the statue's shock.
