Carp et deum

Not really the point of this poem at all, but I wonder what Charles Bukowski looked like as a little kid.

The crab

A cancer cartoon. Believe it or not, this was the cheeriest cartoon I could find this morning. And personally, I think Ed should have someone look at his nose. That doesn’t look good to me.

Flapper Boots and the Underpants King

Yesterday was this cartoon’s 95th birthday. I think it holds up pretty well. Lots of gags and a radio hypnotizer to boot.

Get ready brother, your time has come

This cartoon is so iconic that it’s been copied a lot for faux vintage cartoon projects, but I don’t think I’ve ever posted it before. Three days from Halloween seems like a good time to do so. Beware: there’s no happy ending to this one. Steal a chicken and your days are numbered, bub.

Loves them ghosks

You know, maybe Bluto’s so mad all the time because people never pick up on his hidden talents. Look at all he does in this cartoon. He’s a gifted ventriloquist, mimic, marionettist and special effects makeup artist. On top of that, he knows how to tie a cravat.

Stop chasing Olive, Bluto. There’s some other girl out there just waiting for a special star like you.

Rodney and the doc

This tuberculosis hospital doesn’t seem as posh and interesting as the one in The Magic Mountain, but then again they didn’t try to keep Rodney there forever so I guess he should feel lucky.

Vámonos

Sign me up for a jello car, but I’m not so sure about the getting covered in honey part of this cartoon. It seems messy, and we already have an ant problem in the house.

Ringading dandy

Thank goodness spumoni was never involved. Things really could have gotten ugly.

Just talking with my mouth

I never watched Clutch Cargo, so I was unfamiliar with this “Synchro-Vox” animation system. It is really quite a thing.

Laugh, mouse, laugh

This cartoon kind of reminds me of a movie I worked on a long time ago called The Legend of Flashpants. That movie ended more tragically than this one, though, and there was less singing. The female love interest wasn’t as fickle, either. Okay, maybe this cartoon has nothing in common with The Legend of Flashpants except for a mustachioed guy trying to explode his rival onstage. Moving on.
