Mighty Tyer - Helpless Hippo

Here's a clip from The Helpless Hippo (1953), featuring one of Tyer's brilliant shrink-takes. I wonder, what are those little black 'sticks' left behind when a character runs off in many Tyer scenes? My guess is that it might be pieces of lead left on the drawings by this eccentric guy!

Mighty cartoons tend to be better when he's actually in the whole cartoon, and not just the last two minutes. Too bad it didn't happen often.
