I may well be totally wrong, but I'm thinking an illustration -- or part of one -- from the late 60s on. Between campy nostalgia and Robert Crumb, the rubber-hose style was popular for funny magazine illustrations, and there were artists who could do a very persuasive mock Fleischer (others would do a much looser evocation, sort of a neutered Crumb). It feels less a cartoon gag than an illustration for a specific article. And the guy's Mickey Mouse snout is suspect.
Thanks, Donald. That's certainly possible. Milton Knight came long a bit later, but he is one of the artists influenced by thirties cartoons that is still working.
Thanks for thinking of me. It's a frame from a 1931 Fleischer "Screen Song", LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY. https://youtu.be/2XIoe8san7c
Milton, thanks for stopping by and clearing up the mystery!
Grateful to be proven thoroughly wrong. A lot of surprisingly ambitious stuff in that toon.
