Let’s Watch a Cal Dunn Commercial Reel

Here’s part of a reel of commercials that showed up today, produced by Cal Dunn studios. I’m guessing its from the late 50s and you can join me as I watch it for the first time. I hope its good!

It’s pretty cute and has some nicely executed animation at times. As far as I know, a color print has yet to show up on this title, although it does appear that 16mm prints were made in the mid-40s.

“The Magic Slipper” (1948)

Some good, pure cartoon escapism is on the plate for this week’s cartoon – take a little break and enjoy a Terrytoon in HD, from a rare, spliceless Kodachrome! print.
