one reel wonders - what is the sched?


Recommended Posts

Since you're new here, you mostly likely haven't seen other posts about this topic. In a nutshell, TCM says that they don't schedule shorts until a couple of days before they air so it's too late to add them to the printed schedule. They say they have to wait until the last minute because they don't know how much time they need to fill until then. While I do understand that reason, some of us have suggested that a shorts listing be added to the online schedule as soon as they schedule them. However, that hasn't happened.

Couldn?t they solve this problem by having a ?shorts hour? or a ?shorts series? where several shorts are shown in a row, with their titles, dates, and stars listed in the monthly directory?


Why couldn?t we have a ?Passing Parade? day, a travelogue day, a Joe McDokes day, a ?Crime Does Not Pay? day, etc., etc, where a couple of hours, or maybe 3 or 4 hours, are shown at a certain time at least once a month? I mean, even if it?s one Thursday a month at 2 AM, we could learn to find it in the schedule and tape it.

Mr Dobbs -

You should check the schedule for Friday, Septemebr 15th. The entire day is devoted to short films and culminates with a selection of short films made in the 50's, 60's and 70's after shorts were no longer regularly presented in theaters.


September also includes new Cartoon Alleys and a special presentation of an hour of Chuck Jones shorts on Monday the 4th.
