Title: Manco's Hat
Post by: iceman on November 21, 2004, 07:59:25 PM
Where are the bullet holes in Manco's hat after Mortimer shoots it up in the air a few times? Also why does it whistle when it comes back down to earth?

the whistle is part of the musical score, it wouldn't actually whistle as it comes down.

As far as holes, felt would probably tear much like if you were to take a pencil and poke it through a piece of paper you don't get a round hole cut out you have flaps on either side where the bullet passes through. Paper is thin and the flaps remain bent outwards, felt is thicker and retains memory so the flaps probably close up the holes. Thats why you have to steam a felt hat to shape it the steam breaks down the memory.

though.
