Heart Gag

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Gag in which a valentine-shaped heart is visible, usually owing to some enormous fright, pounding in the chest or neck of a character. Typical examples can be seen in Porky’s Last Stand (Clampett, 1940), the 4-F heart of Bugs Bunny in Falling Hare (Clampett, 1943), and the heart of a fox in his mouth in The Foxy Duckling (Davis, 1947).
