** 1939's WB short ''Thugs With Dirty Mugs'': Eddie G. Robbemsome stops counting his money long enough to do an impersonation of radio personality Fred Allen for us.
** 1940's ''Holiday Highlights'' - which features scenes illustrating each of the major U.S. holidays - has the narrator playing a practical joke by not having any scene for April Fool's Day; while he laughs and keeps saying, "Fooled You!", a title card shows up on the screen that reads, "[[Radio/FibberMcgeeAndMolly Tain't Funny, [=McGee=]!]] - The Management".

Frederick Bean "Tex" Avery (19081980) is widely considered the original animated cartoon gag-man, famous for employing [[WildTake wild takes]], BreakingTheFourthWall, lampshading [[BornInTheTheatre medium conventions]], and stretching every joke to its [[CrossesTheLineTwice comedic limit]]. Sure, there were gags in cartoons before Tex, if you are particularly tickled by [[WesternAnimation/LadyPlayYourMandolin a fox]] in BlackFace being [[LiteralAssKicking smacked on the ass by stuff]]; but it was Tex's arrival at [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Bros.]], and his hand-picked staff of animators and directors, that defined what we now call UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation.

Added DiffLines:

* ShowDontTell: Despite having a surface of anarchy, Avery was a master of visual storytelling, and far favored visual comedy over writing based gags (even his own ''Symphony in Slang'' relied purely on strong sight gags to carry over the deliberately lame puns). In his later years, he lamented about how dialogue-focused animation had become at the expense of visual comedy.
-->"What, all this junk, the yak-yak-yak? It would've broke my heart! Dialogue gags are a dime a dozen, but a good sight gag is hard to come by."

Added DiffLines:

* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: Actually averted; Tex's cartoons, especially in his peak years, are very tightly structured and paced, and rarely if ever go off into these kind of tangents. The fact that he wasn't that interested in anything beyond basic characterization in the first place probably precluded using this anyway.
