This is a really hard question. First I'll narrow it down to three.

Haredevil Hare
The Great Piggy Bank Robbery
Baby Bottleneck

OK. Now it's basically a toss-up.

I choose, Baby Bottleneck.

Scaredy Cat (Jones/1948) is, at the moment, my all time favourite theatrical short from the golden age. It's a shining example of the Jones unit at its best. The animation, colours, visual experimentation, music, and humour all click together blissfully.

Swing You Sinners, from 1930. I can watch this cartoon again and again and get something new from it. It reaches levels of weirdness that the animated cartoon never quite equaled.

The more cartoons I watch, the more I realize I don't have a favorite one.

SO difficult, but I'd say maybe "Who Killed Who?" Doesn't get much funnier than that. Close second would be "Bad Luck Blackie."

First one that came in my mind: Ub Iwerks - The Office Boy

I'm gonna go with Duck Amuck. I'm honestly surprised no one's said that one yet.

I have a favorite, it's called "Too Many Of Them", it stars every possible character and it's a collective effort by every possible artist.
