Ub Iwerks' Finger


The finger in question actually belongs to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates in Iwerks' 1933 MGM cartoon, THE AIR RACE starring his character Willie Whopper. At first seen thumbing a ride, when none of the planes stop he offers this obscene gesture...and yes, it is exactly what it looks like!
