Wacky Hollywood (Mar, 1947)

Wacky Hollywood even makes an entertainment feature of an oil well pump, ordinarily an ugly but practical tool. It’s at a children’s park and they love it, for as it goes up and clown it wiggles its ears and opens its mouth— and pumps 75 barrels of oil every day, too.

    Pumping raw petroleum in a children’s park and making the rocker pump inviting to children. What could possibly go wrong with such a great idea?

    I’m curious as to what relation this has to Hollywood…

    Billy: “Mommy, Mommy I want to ride the Oil Demon!”
    Mommy: “No dear, the Oil Demon rides you!”
    Billy: “Sigh”

    LA has lots of oil wells. Many are hidden or disguised.

    I seem to recall that Hollywood High has several on the premises.

    Sure beats having bake sales.

    Toronto, you’re correct http://www.venocoinc.co…

    As of 2003 the high school campus contains 18 working oil wells and 25 abandoned ones.
