Savage! Sadistic! Thrill hungry! When it came to independent filmmaking in the sunshine state, William Grefé was the wildest of the wild! During the 1960s and '70s, the Miami-based producer/director transformed the darkest corners of the Florida swamps into his own personal backlot. From rampaging crocodiles possessed by an ancient Seminole witch doctor (DEATH CURSE OF TARTU) to a slithering serpent named STANLEY, William Grefé would grind out low-budget exploitation films for drive-ins and hardtops around the world. Now, without the benefit of cages or other protective devices, the untold story of Florida's most daring moviemaker comes to the screen...IN PSYCHEDELIC COLOR!

They Came from the Swamp: The Films of William Grefé movie full length review - Cartoon Physics

Walt Disney explains the rationale behind the laws of cartoon physics in this episode of The Wonderful World of Color.

Uncle Walt justifies them in terms of psychology, and there is some basis in this, but while this is a typically amusing episode of the show, well illustrated with clips from Disney's cartoons, I don't find this convincing. Such cartoons laws as the conservation of gravity -- a character will not fall until he notices he is in mid-air -- originated as a gag, with the cartoon law coming later.

This episode is a defense against the claims that cartoon violence causes violence in children. When Donald Duck has a safe fall on top of him and turns into a flattened accordion -- with squeezebox sounds -- psychologists such as Frederick Wertham and Alberta Siegel claimed that violent cartoons made children more violent They claimed that, at least in part, children thought that because shooting Daffy Duck with a shotgun merely made his beak turn around, ready to be snapped back stoically in place, children, that my brother and I fought because we thought there would be no effect. I wish to assure anyone reading this that my brother and I fought because we wanted to hurt each other and that we understood the difference between real people and cartoon ducks on a movie or television screen. Pain was real and made us cry, unlike the coyote after he had fallen several thousand feet with a splat.

I don't believe my brother and I were particularly perspicacious. We thought these cartoons were unreal and silly. But who knows? Perhaps the average human being is as humorless and lacking in judgment as Drs. Wertham and Siegel.
