Good that they are rescheduling it. Maybe we can get a proper cartoon block more than once a year but one step at a time.

FYI, here's their response from their FB:

 

"Fans, last night we hit a mix up with our programming schedule, and we apologize for this. We've rescheduled Guest Programmer Steve Stanchfield's exploration of the Van Beuren Studios animated shorts for Sunday, December 7. If you've downloaded Watch TCM, you can also look for the Van Beuren shorts there this week.

Thanks for your understanding & patience with us!"

Good to know I wasn't hallucinating.

 

I checked up on the link posted above at the Cartoon Research site to see a lot of humorous comments regarding Steve Stanchfield's collection "missing in action". It was surreal hearing Robert mentioning the Van Beuren toonies and nothing showing up.

 

Seen the McCay stuff before, but a few Brays were new to me. Was surprised at how outrageous the Col. Heeza Liar (chicken massacre included) and Dinky Doodle cartoons were. They may not be safe for all of the (overly protected) kiddies these days.

Does anyone why the Van Bueren shorts were not shown? To me those were the ones I was looking forward to the most. Plus obviously we really didnt need to see the Mccay works twice. I'm assuming this was a mistake. But couldn't have happened at a worse time. What a shame TCM.

McCay block was fascinating, if not psychologically disturbing ;)

 

A real shame the Van Beuren shorts were suddenly dropped w/o explanation. It was the more rare historical shorts I was looking forward to.

Bad showing on somebody's part.

:wacko:

First of all, I boo-booed. It is the 6th, not the 8th! Way to go with my "starting a thread"!

 

I'm surprised there isn't any discussion about it here. Figured I would at least provide the info... and stir up the conversation (if any). Jerry Beck will be involved here.

 

The following links provide details:

 

John Canemaker on Winsor McCay's pioneering landmarks (1911-1921)

Tom Stathes on the John Bray studio (Paul Terry, Max & Dave Fleischer and Walter Lantz included) (1913-1927)

Steve Stanchfield on the Van Beuren studio (1928-1936) and Ted Eshbaugh's version of WIZARD OF OZ :
