Dr. Seuss and Flit: "Harem Plus Cat"
Dr. Seuss fulfills every man's true fantasy: having a lot of harem girls fall on his neck...maybe simultaneously! That one woman looks like she's ALREADY falling, though maybe she's supposed to be dancing.
There are two more interesting things in this cartoon. First, notice that the Sultan is wearing a robe with a star-and-crescent symbol, presumably to evoke Islam but for some reason looking more like one of Merlin's cast-offs.
Second, who's that standing behind the Sultan? Why, it's the famous Cat In The Turban!
