When Gene Deitch took over Terrytoons he introduced new characters to be shown in their theatrical line-up, which by now have switched to CinemaScope.
One such character was John Doormat. John was a typical henpecked husband that's been in some form of entertainment since the dawn of time. What made him stand out, though, was a psychological torture he endured, having no assertiveness in his body, especially to his wife. It's explored in one short, "Dustcap Doormat", released in 1958.
The short was directed by Al Kouzel. Jim Tyer animated the ending, which I thought was fun.
