Tomato Gag

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 24, 2004

    Gag in which one character, through the use of a tomato, convinces another character that that character has committed murder, the idea being that the character has squeezed so hard all they are left with is what appears to be blood. Usually followed by scenes of terrible remorse. Seen in The Heckling Hare (Avery, 1941) and Peck Up Your Troubles (Freleng, 1945).
