Saturday morning cartoon

This is a Barnacle Bill cartoon which features the character who will become Betty Boop. Notice that Betty is not fully human (dog ears) in the very early cartoons.

I'm old and rough and dirty and tough
I never can get drunk enough
I drink my whiskey when I can
Whiskey from an old tin can
For whiskey is the life of man

Children who grew up watching cartoons like this defeated the Axis and put men on the moon.

And as a bouns here is a cool commercial:

Well, whisky does mean "water of life".
