Tag Archives: Otto Messmer
This week in Mark Kausler’s closet we found a real piece of gold: a vintage reel of Otto Messmer animation that was originally shown as animated lights in Times Square.
Since it’s almost New Year’s Eve, and that usually involves Times Square, here is a little animation done by Otto Mesmer exclusively shown on billboards on Broadway back in the 50s.
Today’s artist is more notable than many of the others profiled on this column – from animator to entrepreneur, here’s Joe Oriolo!
For this week’s cartoon, I pulled “Felix Dines and Pines”, an especially weird entry in the great silent Felix the Cat series that qualifies quite nicely as a ‘spooky’ cartoon.
