   Remarkably, there are a number of references made in WB cartoons to gays, usually in the “fairy” context. See, for example, the ferry boat in Land of the Midnight Fun (Avery, 1939) and the reaction of the cowboy after getting sprayed by perfume in I Like Mountain Music (Harman/Ising, 1933). Then, of course, there is the effeminate pose by the booby-prize Oscar in What’s Cookin’, Doc? (Clampett, 1944).
