  1. These Mighty Mouse cartoons sound like: KRAKATOA from 1945, and either CRYING WOLF from 1947 or BEAUTY ON THE BEACH from 1950.
  2. Hi Pat, That could be Lew Lehr who was with Twentieth Century-Fox studios in the 1930s and 1940s. He did a lot of humourous commentary parodying travelogues and newsreels, his most famous tagline was "Monkies is da cwaziest people!" read in a mock-German dialect. Tex Avery also directed animated cartoons making fun of travelogues such as "The Isle of Pingo-Pongo", "Detouring America" and "Land of the Midnight Fun", many of them narrated by the great Robert C. Bruce.
  3. "Pinocchio in Outer Space" was made by the Swallow-Belvision company in Brussels, it was not an anime film, nor was is produced in Japan.
  4. TCM has advanced to "angel" status as far as this viewer is concerned. The "Our Gang" marathon was the greatest moment in TCM's history, the many silent Gangs were a revelation! Little Farina was the funniest kid in the mid-1920s Our Gangs, terrific! Many of the sound Our Gangs were restrored prints with the original titles! The Laurel and Hardy marathon was just about as good, TCM ran every sound short of the "boys" in one day. The prints were pretty good for the most part, but some of the earlier sound L&Hs are in need of restoration. However, "Below Zero" ended after the first reel, why

  6. That's BOLD KING COLE, a Technicolor Van Beuren Rainbow Parade cartoon, released by RKO on May 29th, 1936, directed by Burt Gillett. It features Felix the Cat and Old King Cole. King Cole is a terrible blowhard who brags so much that the ghosts of his ancestors crawl out of the old family portraits and try to teach him a lesson. They sing the "You Talk Too Much" song. Felix routs them with lightning bolts! Try to find the "Cartoons that Time Forgot" video collections, this one is on there.
  7. That's a "Speaking of Animals" short, produced by Jerry Fairbanks in the 1940s, released by Paramount. The Cow Cow Boogie number is probably in "Speaking of Animals in A Musical Way" released July 20th, 1945.
  8. That cartoon sounds like BOOBY HATCHED from 1944, Warner Bros. cartoon directed by Frank Tashlin. The half-hatched duckling is named Robespierre, and the classical music is from "Fingal's Cave" by Felix Mendelssohn. I don't remember if Robespierre hatches at the end of the cartoon or not, get the LOONEY TUNES GOLDEN COLLECTION Vol. 4 and go to Disc. 2 and find out for yourself.
  9. I miss the old theme song too, Suzanne! "It's such a perfect time for ONE..REEL..WONDERS!" I liked the old record scratches sound effects in the background. The song was a little inaccurate, as a lot of the shorts TCM runs are two reels or more and they still call them "one reel" wonders, but it's still a catchy little tune! Speaking of two reels, did you catch that MGM "Song Writers Review" from a couple of days ago with Jack Benny in 1930? I never knew it existed! Jack was really doing his Frank Fay impression in this one, as he introduces Arthur Freed and many other great popular composers.
  10. Yes, that's TO SPRING from MGM, released June 20th,1936, produced by Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising and directed by Bill Hanna. "Time for spring I say!"
  11. Looks like we shorts fans are left in the lurch again, listingswise. MGMWBRKO PLEASE HELP! Message was edited by: waffleslost

  13. This is the HFE cut-down version of "The Klondike Kid" (1932). Message was edited by: waffleslost Message was edited by: waffleslost
  14. Hi Technicolor, This is the HFE cut-down version of "The Klondike Kid" from 1932. HFE released several cut-downs (about 200 feet 16mm) such as "Mickey Gives A Party"--"THE WHOOPEE PARTY", "Mickey Saves The Airmail"--"THE MAIL PILOT", "Mickey's Trick Horse"--"THE STEEPLE CHASE and "Mickey and Simon Legree"--"MICKEY'S MELLERDRAMMER".
  15. Yes, Thistledown, she is a caricature of Edna Mae Oliver, probably a Ben Shenkman design. Arthur Q. Bryan sings very nicely in this cartoon: "You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby."
