No, I'm saying there obviously aren't any fictional events in any
cartoon consciousness, they are in our consciousness only. The literal
mechanism of the cartoon is an empty vessel which is somewhat
interchangeable (but not disposable and not arbitrarily
interchangeable - has to be something cartoonable, like a flip book,
zoetrope, dynamic graphic display, etc).
