Starting in the 1920’s and really picking up the pace in the 1940’s it was common to see several short animated films prior to the main feature. You’d also see a serial and a news reel before the show too. It was truly a golden age of animation. And the creativity was off the charts. Some of these cartoons are truly bizarre, even to a modern viewer. We wonder what those must of been like to see in an original release in the theater. Well, Bob can relate what it was like for him growing up in a small town in Montana. Prepare for a whirlwind tour of short animated classic films.
Here’s a link to the YouTube playlist of shorts we’ve watched and discuss in this episode.
And in a special extended after show, Bob describes his awesome tour of Warner Bros. studios.
Up next… Snow White!
