Here’s a sort-of summary of the events of the week: Fleischer Rareties; Flip The Frog; and some beloved Van Bueren cartoons – now restored!
The 1973 two-record set that helped celebrate “50 Happy Years” of The Walt Disney Company also turned to be a tribute to Disney’s in-house record company.
In 1942, the Disney Studios created a public service announcement, Out of the Frying Pan and into the Firing Line, which showed “the importance of saving waste fats.”
The Animated Antics and Gabby series seemed to struggle to figure out a format. But they’re interesting and entertaining just the same.
