As a long time classic cartoon fan, it gives me great pleasure to watch these gems with my 11 and 8 year old sons, who also love the old B&W's as well as the 1930's and '40's classics...

A new generation is there for the taking, for they can only watch so much SpongeBob and the others...

Thank God for TCM...keep up the great work...!!!

If TCM decides to keep this up, hopefully they can get some of the Disney animated classics as well. It's not like Disney's showing them or anything. Let someone who actually cares about broadcasting classic films show them!

I also hope this is the beginning of TCM and Warners showing more of the classic canon of cartoons they own the rights to and dont show. I would also like to see the 1930s WB shorts in black and white and the more "politically incorrect" cartoons run for an adult audience. You run feature films from almost all studios, why not their cartoons as well? Like the Lantz Universal shorts! I hope this is the beginning of regular showings of classic cartoons in their own show or festival, or at least on "EXTRAS" between the movies.

TCM is the perfect home for classic animation; I've already set my DVR for Sunday night!

What TCM is doing with this special program of Rare Animation is magnificent and so overly due. I have always said (especially to my film and animation history students) that TCM is the greatest television network in the history of recorded entertainment and this Rare Animation program further confirms my feelings. TCM cares about live-action film history, and now they show they care for the history of the animated cartoon. I will be watching and I will be promoting this program to all of my animation students in Vancouver, B.C. A recurring program of animation on TCM is a no-brainer. Thank you TCM, Robert Osborne and the essential Jerry Beck!

I am really looking forward to the 21st......Thank you TCM for doing this, but please, Don't let this be the only time that you do this. You should realy make this a regular once a month feature.

TCM is exactly where these cartoons belong. I can't wait for the 21st - my husband is also excited and he isn't really a cartoon buff. We'll be sitting side by side enjoying the programming with a big bowl of popcorn.

Actually I've seen Coal Black on DVD. I think you can get through The Whole Toon Catalog.

A lot of Van Bueren and Flesiher cartoons is available through public domain DVD's. The Quality is iffy.


I'm also looking forward to Sunday night.

A weekly showcase would be nice. I wonder if a lot of old 'toons have rights issues, or cost a lot to show. Probably lots of the WB stuff is licensed out already. But, Fleischer, Van Beuren, even MGM don't get shown much at all.

Jerry Beck is my guest on this week's "The Commentary Track" podcast. Subscribe for free on iTunes or listen directly from the website: www.thecommentarytrack.com

And, for the record, I think TCM should show a WHOLE lot more animation. A weekly showcase would be a great start.

Classic animation is just that-classic, and to see more of it on TCM would be great. Would love to see many of the cartoons that Time Warner owns that will probably never make to DVD on the channel. Maybe COAL BLACK...?

I'm with you! I've seen many of the Screen Songs, but there are definitely lots I haven't seen yet. Also, I'd like to see Fleischer Bros. silents, like Koko the Klown.

Jerry Beck says that some classic silent-era cartoons, UPA cartoons, and Paramount's first two animated features (with Max Fleischer) will be shown on TCM. Tune in and lets hope this works.





I especially want more Paramount Pictures cartoons on TCM, particularly Screen Songs with original titles.

Are ya with me?????
