I always loved Max Fleischer's (1939) animated feature Gulliver's Travels. My favorite part was when the night watchman Gabby tries to convince the town that "There's a giant on the beach! There's a giant on the beach!"
In the 1980's a popular comedian named Gallagher would smash watermelons on stage as part of his act. The front rows would always get covered in watermelon at his shows.
After one of his shows, he was so exhausted from all that smashing, that he found a secluded beach and fell asleep..... the rest is history ;o)
I "borrowed" the original Max Fleischer's background for this piece..... and doodled up my own version of Gabby.
