In the 1933 Betty Boop cartoon Is My Palm Read, the ocean liner that Betty Boop is traveling on gets sunk in a storm, and the ship's funnels can be seen acting as hands, grabbing their smoke rings and using them as lifeboats to save the passengers. It can be seen in this video at the 2:40 mark.

I've just recognized the music playing during the ocean liner sequence!

It's the "Storm" part of the William Tell Overture by Rossini which is used for the tornado sequences in the Disney cartoons The Band Concert and The Little Whirlwind and it is also used in a bull moose fight sequence in another Disney cartoon titled Moose Hunters.

Here is a video of the song on YouTube, in which some paintings of ships and boats in stormy seas can be seen!
