Grim Natwick seems to carry a lot of the animation on this short, and his well-drawn poses on the skeleton man are some of my favorites in this cartoon.
I went out to the UCLA archives to evaluate the materials on the Iwerks ‘Comi-Color’ series of cartoons. Happily, the series exists in 35mm with all original titles intact on every film.
In the early sound era it was apparently easier to use, on occasion, “Needle Drop” music from commercial records to score a cartoon. Here’s a list of several I’ve identified.
Ub Iwerks renamed his company Cartoon Films, Ltd. in 1936 after the split with Pat Powers. Here are a few animated theatrical commercials from the studio dating from 1939 and 1940.
This week this space is devoted to an update and showing still frames on two projects in progress: Ub Iwerk’s Flip the Frog and Van Beuren Studio’s Cubby Bear.
