This was a Mighty Mouse cartoon – entitled as I watched it as the Jail Break but the only likely IMDb reference that I can find is under a title Bad Bill Bunion. If they are one and the same then the director was Mannie Davis. IMDb lists it as 1945, but other research indicates 1946.
The cartoon itself follows Bunion as he escapes from Alcatraz and instigates a cross US crime wave, unstoppable until Mighty Mouse comes along. So, why the honourable mention?
When we first see Alcatraz we are introduced to two other inmates, the incorrectly (as commonly happens) named Frankenstein and, in the next cell, Dracula. In the very few seconds we see him he turns from a crap bat into human form and runs his finger over his neck to camera. We see him even more briefly at the end of the film when Mighty Mouse returns Bunion to Alcatrz.
