The beads/drops of sweat resulting from the work of the volts and amps.

While I am not sure how to draw this, watts is not another cartoon character, but what get we when more voltage toon characters are pushing more current toon characters through the restriction.

While not strictly accurate since it's I x E, not I + E which the visual will show.

As a result of them multiplying!

Correct but only in the context shown by Johns formula.

So, there oughta be a lever, pulley, or some other kind of multiplier between volts and amps to make the cartoon more representative of reality?

The amp is currently stuck, the volt is only potentially there, the ohm is resisting the urge to leave, and the watt is powerless to do anything about it.
